In a world flooded with information from a multitude of sources, collecting, managing, making sense of and communicating knowledge, or evidence, is highly challenging.

Procuring, producing and using relevant evidence in policymaking is an even more complex task. It demands a set of distinct skills and additionally a mutual understanding between researchers and policymakers.

The European Commission's Bioeconomy Knowledge Centre (BKC) will be launched at this event as the Commission's central knowledge hub on the bioeconomy.

Its purpose is to help to manage knowledge demand (helping users identifying the knowledge they really need), and knowledge supply (informing knowledge producers about users' needs; making knowledge available to (EU) policy makers and stakeholders). 

Participants will explore how improved knowledge on bioeconomy can help policymakers better design related EU policies in the short, medium and long term.

There is a growing demand for high quality inclusive public services as well as increased public scrutiny of government spending. Decision makers are facing the need to reach timely decisions in an increasingly volatile, uncertain and complex environment.

Quality evidence can effectively feed into policy and decision making processes, to contribute to the effectiveness of public interventions, achieving inclusive growth, and to help rebuild trust in public institutions and science.
