Joint statement on science advice in Covid-19

The European Commission’s Group of Chief Scientific Advisors has published a detailed statement on EU science advice in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, in collaboration with the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies and Peter Piot, a special advisor to Ursula von der Leyen.

The main aim of the statement is to provide guidance for giving advice in pandemic situations that are characterised by complexity and uncertainty. It draws on previous work by the Advisors and SAPEA in the form of the Making Sense of Science report.

The statement also announces that SAPEA will work with the Advisors in 2021 to develop specific advice about crisis resilience for the EU.
