Programme

The fourth edition of 'Science meets parliaments' will focus, among others, on

  • How artificial intelligence might impact our lives
  • How to build resilient societies in a turbulent world
  • How values and social relations affect political behaviour and decision-making

Participants will be invited to take part in interactive workshops and scenario exploration games (places may be limited).

The event will also feature the launch of the European Union pilot project 'Science meets Parliaments/Science meets Regions'. This project brings the initiative to national and regional authorities and encourages discussion on locally relevant policy issues.

The event 'Science meets Parliaments' will be accompanied by an exhibition featuring the contribution of science to making sound and successful public policies with direct benefit on people's lives.
