In a world flooded with information making sense of and communicating knowledge, or evidence, is highly challenging.
Evidence-informed policymaking needs advocates and skilled practitioners.
The summer school aims to help researchers to have more impact and policymakers to use evidence for policy solutions.
The workshop will focus on the tools and approaches to inform the policymaking process through evidence.

The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) Annual Science Conference 2018 will take place from the 24-27 September 2018 in Hamburg, Germany.
This workshop will showcase the main developments of various non-EU countries in the Americas, Asia, Oceania and Africa in the implementation and/or adaptation of Smart Specialisation approach.
The 2018 Smarter Conference will offer a comprehensive picture of the smart specialisation policy experience, including an evaluation of its early results, and will highlight recent developments both conceptually and empirically. Attention will be given to implementation challenges and ways to address them, as well as to methodologies for impact assessment. In addition, the conference will explore how smart specialisation engages with global value chains and production networks, and how firms, regions and cities can benefit from relationships across the borders.
