A seminar hosted by Academia Europaea Bergen Hub assesses the findings of the SAPEA report ‘Making sense of science for policy’ and reflects on what insights might be applied to science advice in Norway
The Cardiff Hub was delighted to be one of the invited guests to the opening of a new art exhibition at the Norwegian Church in Cardiff Bay. Prisoner of War is the work of Bergen artist Bodil Friele and draws on wartime experiences of her father, recorded in his notebooks and poems. He was in a Halifax bomber plane shot down near Hamburg in 1943 and spent the rest of the war in a Nazi POW camp.
As part of the public event organised to mark UNESCO Sustainable Gastronomy Day (18th June), the Academia Europaea Bergen Hub hosted an open debate on the theme of Food from the Oceans. Food from the Oceans is a current topic within the European Scientific Advice Mechanism, with an evidence review report due by the end of the year. The work is led by SAPEA (Scientific Advice for Policy by European Academies) and is coordinated by the Cardiff AE Hub.
The first of several public engagement events for the Food from the Oceans project, coordinated by the Cardiff Hub, was held in Bergen on 18th June. It marked the UNESCO Sustainable Gastronomy Day and Bergen’s status as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy. It was held in the marketplace Nøstetorget and the picturesque Nøsteboden, built in 1645.
