"Science advice in the European Union: Challenges and Opportunities" by Dr. Jan Marco Müller

Friday, May 18, 2018 10:00to11:00
Redpath Museum 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C4, CA

Dr. Müller will provide an introduction to the different science advisory bodies in the European Union and how scientific evidence makes its way into the policy process. Drawing on his extensive experience in the European science advice context, he will reflect on the complexity of European policy-making and the importance of science for better regulation. At the same time, he will discuss the challenges of contemporary science advice, from the accelerating avalanche of scientific knowledge and ever-increasing complexity of policy challenges to the globally evolving tide of populists and fact-deniers.
