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.
