2020’s Covid-19 outbreak has shone the spotlight on science advice like never before. How well are Europe’s science advice frameworks standing up to this major stress test? This is the key question of the next SAPEA webinar, which will take place on 16 September 2020 at 13:30 CEST. Is is co-organised between SAPEA, Academia Europaea, the JRC and the SAM Unit.
In this 90-minute webinar, chief science advisors, experts and staff of the European Commission will reflect on how effectively Europe is rising to the challenge and what lessons can be learned for the future. They will share practical experiences of giving science advice in the face of unprecedented complexity, uncertainty and public visibility during the outbreak; as well as how best to apply science advice frameworks and practices to secure greater resilience in the aftermath of Covid-19.
This webinar is part of the INGSA Global Week of Dialogue.
