24 Nov 2022

To foster discussions on a better use of scientific evidence and expertise in policymaking within the Member States, the JRC and the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD), with the support of the Directorate-General for Structural Reform Support (DG REFORM), have developed a Commission Staff Working Document (SWD) on “Supporting and connecting policymaking in the Member States with scientific research”. This document identifies the rationale behind building capacity of science-for-policy ecosystems, as well as the challenges encountered at the science-policy interface, while highlighting good practices and available EU instruments in support of Member States’ capacity building in the field of science for policy.
