The President's Science & Technology Advisory Council


Welcome to the website of the President's Science & Technology Advisory Council. The Council is an independent and informal group of science and technology experts from academia, business and civil society, covering a broad range of disciplines and uniting expertise from across the European Research Area. Established in January 2013, the task of the Council is to examine areas where research and innovation can contribute to Europe's growth — with a particular focus on benefits and risks of advances in science & technology and how to address and communicate these.

On this website you will find information related to the mandate of the Council, the profiles of its members, as well as the documents related to its meetings, including the opinion papers the Council provides to the President of the European Commission.
