Policy analyst for science for policy and evidence-informed policymaking
Lorenzo is a policy analyst at the Joint Research Centre (JRC), and works to connect and strengthen science-for-policy ecosystems across Europe. Particularly, he interacts with services across the Commission to improve science advice mechanisms and knowledge exchange programmes within the Commission.
