In order to promote a culture of evidence-informed policy-making, it is important that EU policy-makers have a regular exchange with scientists allowing them to better understand scientists' views on policy issues and vice versa.
On 15 September 2015 Members of the European Parliament will have unique opportunity to meet leading scientists within EU scientific community.

The event is co-organised by the JRC and Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA), and will launch two initiatives:

  • ep

    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.
