In a complex world, evidence-based policymaking can enhance the effectiveness of public policies. To develop the necessary skills for improving practices in better integrating evidence into policy-making, the European and African Union Commissions together with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) are organising a highly participatory evidence and policy event.

From 30 August to 2 September, participants will have the opportunity to develop their working practices, skills, behaviours and methods, in both the scientific and policy-making domains via masterclasses and group work. 

This year, JRC and IIASA  invite applications from policy officers and scientists developing policy and conducting research in the field of the Water-Energy-Food nexus. The event aims to meet the following main goals:

  • Enhance participants' skills in integrating evidence into policy-making.
  • Create a community of practice that will continue to collaborate afterwards.
  • Stimulate participants to share their new skills and learning with their colleagues.
