Science Meets Parliaments conference looks at role of science in 21st century
This year's "Science meets Parliaments" conference is taking place on 6-7 February 2019, in Brussels. At this event, senior policy-makers and leading scientists are discussing the role of science in the 21st century in tackling emerging challenges such as the impact of artificial intelligence, the rise of fake news, increasing the resilience of our societies in the face of relentless change and engaging citizens in political decision-making.
"Science meets Parliaments" is organised jointly by the JRC with the European Parliament's Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA). The annual event intends to promote the culture of evidence-informed policy-making on the EU, national and regional level.
During the event, the EU pilot project "Science meets Parliaments / Science meets Regions" is also launched. As part of this project throughout 2019, 26 interactive events will take place across Europe, exploring how scientists, citizens and policymakers can work together for local solutions to local issues, such as water management, preserving coastal economies or the impact of migration. The project is funded by the European Parliament (EP).
