Update on the launch of the SAPEA Evidence Review Report ‘Making sense of science for policy’

The latest SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) Evidence Review Report, Making sense of science for policy under conditions of complexity and uncertainty, was coordinated by the Cardiff Hub and published on 9th July 2019.

In the month after the launch, the report has featured in 16 articles Europe-wide, including Research Professional (with over 280,000 registered users worldwide) and Cardiff University’s website.

The report has also been made available in several repositories, such as the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction and INGSA (International Network for Government Science Advice).

The publication of the report is having a significant impact on social media as well, with over 41K impressions and 900 engagements of the Hub and SAPEA Twitter accounts. The external response was also very favourable, with many posts by collaborators, stakeholders and academics across Europe.

The European Commission’s Group of Chief Scientific Advisors (GCSA) will launch their Scientific Opinion on the topic, informed by the SAPEA evidence review report, on the European Research & Innovation Days in Brussels. The presentation will take place on 26th September 2019 on Day 3 of the Policy Conference, and the panel will include Ortwin Renn, Chair of the SAPEA Working Group on Making sense of science for policy.

From then on, the reports will be promoted widely in different events, including a formal presentation organised by the AE Bergen Knowledge Hub (Oslo, 4th November) and a dedicated session in the SAPEA symposium ‘The future of science advice in Europe’ (Helsinki, 13th November).

The Evidence Review Report and more information about the project are available here.
