Supporting policy with scientific evidence

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

Organisation

Group of Chief Scientific Advisors

A group of 7 Chief Scientific Advisors, appointed in their personal capacity and who act independently and in the public interest. They offer independent scientific advice to the European Commission to inform policy making and recommendations to improve the interaction between policy-making and scientific advice.

The advisors work closely with the Scientific Advice for Policy by European Academies (SAPEA) consortium, which gathers expertise in engineering, humanities, medicine, natural and social sciences from over 100 academies and societies across Europe.

Together with a secretariat in the Commission’s research and innovation department, the advisors and SAPEA are collectively known as the Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM).
