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 today's political climate, when policy decisions are questioned and confidence in public institutions, expertise and evidence is under threat, it is vital to understand better the impact of knowledge and science on policymaking.
What is impact of knowledge of policies? How can we measure such an impact? How can such measurements help demonstrate the importance of evidence informed policy? A highly interactive and participatory workshop designed to reach a consensus among evidence and policy practitioners on what is policy impact and which are the best approaches for measuring it.
