Today’s world faces an increasingly complex and interconnected policy environment. This has prompted the EU and national governments to rethink existing tools and structures for designing policy, and to seek innovative ways to govern.
This rethinking extends also to science advice at both an EU and a national level. Many key policy challenges of the twenty-first century depend on scientific fields where the evidence is complex, uncertain or rapidly evolving, or where there is controversy both within and outside the scientific community.
In this context, some 200 expert delegates will gather in Helsinki to discuss emerging trends, challenges and opportunities for the future of science advice in Europe.
Venue: National Museum of Finland (Kansallismuseo), Mannerheimintie 34, Helsinki.
