The JRC is pleased to share the material from our training course focused on how to effectively provide scientific evidence to policymaking. This is a two-day training course on assessing science, understanding policymaking processes, and gaining insight into the interaction between the different paradigms in which scientists, policymakers, and politicians operate. It will help scientists to become more reflexive practitioners, mastering the complex task of providing the appropriate knowledge and services with confidence, skill, and respect for their scientific and institutional values. 

It is targeting scientists who are well trained in carrying out research and who can communicate scientific findings to other scientists effectively, but who are seeking to further develop their skills to have an impact on policy.

The training package includes: 

  • The participants' course book

  • Slides (Day 1 and 2) 

  • Simulation game (Round 1 and 2)

  • Exercices
