ARC room 620
While policies both in the U.S. and Europe are committed to be evidence-based, in practice political decisions are often not based on sound science. This is because science is just one element in the policy-making process, which follows also social, economic, and ethical/religious considerations to name just a few. The lecture analyses the relationship between science and policy and gives recommendations on how to enhance the impact of science on policy-making.
