The launch started with a workshop aimed at early career researchers and structured into two panel sessions and two breakout sessions.

Dr Esther Dorado-Ladera, Executive Officer (Projects), had the opportunity to present the work of SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) within the European Commission Scientific Advice Mechanism, as well as the forthcoming SAPEA Evidence Review Report on Making sense of science for policy under conditions of complexity and uncertainty, which is due for publication in mid-2019.

The workshop was followed by a networking reception with Professor Sir Peter Gluckman, former Chief Scientific Advisor of New Zealand and Chair of the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA). Sir Peter gave a talk about his experience as scientific advisor, which focused on the role of the science in society, the skills required by scientists to make their research relevant in a policy context, and the importance of building bridges between the scientists and policymakers.
