Science meets parliaments - events with the European Parliament

Policy-makers and scientists need each other to design solutions for the challenges of our time.

"Science meets parliaments" events are organised to promote

  • a culture of evidence-informed policy-making and
  • regular exchange between EU policy-makers and scientists.

The Sciene meet parliaments events are co-organised by the JRC and Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA), and usually follow two initiatives:

  • Science meets parliaments - a JRC initiative aimed at bringing scientists and policy-makers from the European and national levels together;
  • MEP-scientist pairing scheme - a STOA project aimed at enhancing mutual understanding and fostering links between MEPs and scientists.
