Supporting policy with scientific evidence

We mobilise people and resources to create, curate, make sense of and use knowledge to inform policymaking across Europe.

Knowledge4Policy (K4P) is the EU Commission's platform for evidence-based policymaking. Our goal: to bridge the science-policy gap by bringing together evidence for policy from scientists across Europe, to policymakers across Europe.

Here, you will find

  • high quality, relevant and scientifically robust knowledge created and curated by 19 teams of European Commission scientists
  • content and interfaces specially created and tailored for policymakers
  • a single database of interconnected knowledge to inform policy
  • an online community where scientist and policymakers collaborate to transfer scientific knowledge into public policy (under construction)
