Under the main topic "the role of science in a post fact society" the European Parliament opens its doors to Science Meets Parliaments - a flagship initiative of the JRC, organised in collaboration with the European Parliament’s Science and Technology Options Assessment(STOA) panel.
The day will also include an exploration of the role of regions in evidence-informed policy-making, an opportunity for young scientists to challenge MEPs and a discussion on the importance of art and science for innovation in industry.
The event is now fully-booked, but you can follow the livestream on the event page from 14:00 this Tuesday.

JRC opens its laboratories to wider scientific community
The JRC is opening its scientific laboratories and facilities to scientists and researchers from the private and public sectors.
In a pilot project, three facilities in Ispra (Italy) with the necessary infrastructure to host visitors will offer access through dedicated calls in the fields of safety and security of buildings and of nanobiotechnologies. Other JRC facilities in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands are planning to gradually provide access after completion of the pilot phase in 2017-2018.
