Trans-European online seminar on science-based policy advice in agriculture, food, climate and environment
European governments are facing critical decisions on agriculture, food, climate and environment. Science based policy advice is in high demand, but varies across Europe. The aim of the first trans-European seminar in this area is to facilitate exchange of experiences, challenges and best practices in how to provide Science based policy advice.
