The Evidence for Policy School is a flagship event of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) to reach out to mid-level scientists, policymakers and practitioners to improve the science-policy interface in Member States.
The school aimed to provide professional training for scientists and policymakers in using scientific evidence in policymaking and to build capacity among the 70 participants from 22 different countries to build closer working links across the science-policy divide.
The 2020 winter school was organised by the JRC and the Directorate General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (DG ECHO) in collaboration with the Italian Civil Protection Department, the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) and the University of Florence.
