Science–Policy in Action for the Green and Digital Transition
At this event, Science Europe presented its new report ‘Science–Policy in Action: Insights for the Green and Digital Transition’. The findings of the report were discussed with a high-level panel of leaders from research organisations who are directly engaged in science–policy interactions or working to promote them at an organisational level.
Objectives of the Study
Based on a survey of Science Europe member organisations, the study has three fundamental objectives:
- Understand science–policy interfaces as activities promoting and facilitating science-informed policy making.
- Map the science–policy activities of Science Europe Member Organisations with a specific angle on the green and digital transition.
- Propose recommendations to improve science–policy interactions.
