Science advice for policy: who asks, who gives, and who listens?

January 27, 2020. 18:15 – 19:15. Clarion Hotel the Edge, Tromsö, Norway.

Starting from 2020, Academia Europaea Bergen Knowledge Hub is an associated partner of Arctic Frontiers.

In this event we will bring together a panel (TBA) with experience from science advice, policy making and NGOs. Are there sufficient mechanisms available in Norway and other countries to ensure that political decisions are based on the best available and independent scientific knowledge? What are the specific needs in an Arctic context? The panel will debate challenges and knowledge gaps relevant to the radical changes needed in order to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and what systems need to be in place for policy to be anchored in scientific evidence and scientific thinking.
