Sourcing Science Advice: What can we learn from Europe and beyond?
WhenThursday, September 29, 2022, 14:00 - 15:00
Online discussion of how academics, researchers and policymakers can work together effectively to create evidence based public policy.
As the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science seeks views on a consultation on the Sourcing of Science Advice for Irish public policymakers and government departments, this online discussion will investigate possible lessons that could be learned from Europe in this area. It will seek to examine case studies of how science advice is shared with policymakers across Europe and will ask if Ireland can learn lessons from these examples. This consultation and the subsequent decisions it will lead to mark a pivotal moment in redefining the relationship between researchers and policymakers and the Academy believes it is imperative that the experience of the research community should strongly inform developments in this area.
Attendees will have an opportunity to pose questions to the panellists and views shared will help inform the Royal Irish Academy submission to the department on this topic. In advance of the online discussion, attendees are invited to read the consultation paper and the roadmap previously published by RIA and the IRC on this topic.
