#EU4FACTS - Evidence for Policy Community

European Commission's Joint Research Centre operates at the interface between evidence production and policymaking as part of the Commission's decision-making process. We support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle, by producing, managing and making sense of scientific knowledge.

Our world is currently flooded with information, thus managing and interpreting it becomes a complicated profession in its own right. Through this Community of Practice, JRC aims to gather thinkers and practitioners focused on evidence-informed policymaking, in order to exchange our collective expertise and experience in this complex field. We aim to link conceptual debates on science, policy and their interconnections with practical approaches on how to stimulate the demand for evidence and train people providing and receiving it for the sake of better policies.

By joining this community, you gain access to a one-stop shop for everything related to evidence-informed policymaking. Explore – and contribute to – our forum, news and events sections. Our library provides useful resources to better prepare oneself for the challenges of this field.

JRC values collaboration and wide exchange of knowledge. However, make sure that you share content only with proper acknowledgement and authorisations and comply with the Terms of Use.
