The Group of Chief Scientific Advisors seventh scientific opinion, ‘Scientific Advice to European Policy in a Complex World’, was delivered to Commissioner Moedas during their 19th plenary meeting on 24 September in Brussels. It was published and presented to the public during the European Commission’s Research and Innovation days conference by Professor Pearl Dykstra, Deputy Chair of the group.
ESAF members , amongst other experts across Europe, have contributed to this opinion by sharing insights into their work as policy advisors to their respective governments. They did this not only through providing several case studies and lessons learnt, but also through discussing these lessons in various sessions at the Joint ESAF/INGSA meeting of last June.
