Scientific Support to Policies
Policy decisions – especially at the European level – are never easy. What policy-makers decide will potentially affect the lives of millions of people for many years. Recognising the power of science to serve the decision-making process, the European Commission funded over 250 projects under its ‘Scientific support to policies’ (SSP) initiative under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) for Research. These projects are summarised in the Information Centre and described in more detail on the SSP web site.
