SAPEA consortium has published its latest Evidence Review Report, with Academia Europaea playing a significant supporting role.
SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) has published its latest Evidence Review Report. Titled Towards sustainable food consumption, it sets out the evidence on which policy recommendations, set out in the Scientific Opinion of the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors, are based.
Academia Europaea’s Cardiff Knowledge Hub provided significant support to the lead academy for the topic, ALLEA. Working with Cardiff University’s European Information Hub and Specialist Unit for Review Evidence (SURE), we carried out a series of literature reviews on different aspects of the topic, along with a mapping of the policy landscape in Europe.
Academia Europaea will be involved in outreach activities in the autumn, with the aim of promoting the reports.
