Are you working in the in Life Sciences, Social & Behavioural Sciences or Arts & Humanities?
Do you want to help to optimise the way that scientific evidence is used in policy-making?
The European Commission's science and knowledge service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), has announced a call to better understand and explain the drivers that influence policy decisions and political discourse. Doing so will help to optimise the way that scientific evidence is used in policy-making.
Enlightenment 2.0 will explore the extent to which facts, values and social relations affect political behaviour and decision-making.
The aim is to understand these drivers at all levels of the political system, from the individual voter, policymaker or politician; to groups such as political parties and civil society organisations; up to the organisational and institutional level, including national governments.
To reflect the breadth and depth of expertise required, the JRC is launching a call for experts in Life Sciences, Social & Behavioural Sciences and Arts & Humanities.
More information can be found in the public call for contributions.
