Science Advice Workshop
This capacity building workshop for early to mid-career researchers and scientists aims to discuss practical experiences of informing policy, and to enhance participants’ ability to provide and engage in science advice for policymaking at all levels of government. Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) play a critical role in attaining national, regional and international development and public policy goals.
It is important to provide scientific evidence to inform policy decision making to ensure effective and efficient policy formulation and implementation. The role of science advice in the formulation and implementation of evidence-based public policies is becoming increasingly recognised.
The workshop will begin with a key-note speech by the chairman of the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA), Sir Peter Gluckman, followed by a panel discussion on the practice of science advice with excellent, experienced scientists and researchers.
The Workshop is co-organised by:
- International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA)
- Global Young Academy (GYA)
- Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU)
- Halle Institute for Economic Research – Member of the Leibniz Association (IWH)
Please see the GYA website for the workshop programme and more details.
