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.
