The interaction between science and policy has never been straightforward. But this relationship has been further complicated by the current post-fact debate. As the Commission's Vice-President, Frans Timmermans, noted recently, "a new crisis has come along … the crisis of evidence and facts … we cannot simply answer a demand for a politics of emotions with a strengthened politics of facts". This crisis is a challenge for the whole of society, not only scientists, experts, the media and policymakers, but also for politicians.

Creating the conditions for genuine engagement of citizens and other societal actors in matters of their concern where science and technology are relevant is an issue of increasing political attention; not least because the diffusion of “low cost” and “low tech” media through which citizens can, like never before, express opinions and concerns calls for institutional reflexivity.

Yet, such background does not guarantee that citizens are actually engaged or their voices accounted for. There has been an effort at institutional levels to walk the talk of societal engagement.
