We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
In the context of the EUSEW 2018 Policy Conference, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre organises the workshop "Energy storytelling: why stories matter to scientists and policy-makers in energy policy".
The workshop addresses the growing gap between scientists and EU-citizens when it comes to understanding the science behind- and the relevance of- energy, climate, and transport to our everyday lives. To have a policy impact, science needs to move from an arms-length, one-shot, fragmented delivery of knowledge towards an iterative, collaborative, holistic approach. This means new skills, and tools: visualisation, research synthesis, knowledge management and community facilitation, citizen/society/stakeholder engagement, etc. Storytelling can form a valuable tool in order to get our message across.
The event will take place on 6 June, 17:45-19:15, in Brussels (room Jenkins, Charlemagne Building)
