Just recently, and after a meeting with the association Ciencia en el Parlamento, the President of the Spanish Congress announced that Spain will soon have its own parliamentary office of science and technology, following a long and ongoing dialogue with the Spanish Board of Congress and all political parties. In this context, Ciencia en el Parlamento, published a report “Oportunidades para el asesoramiento científico en España” [Opportunities for the Parliamentary science advice in Spain] showing the variety of parliamentary science advice mechanisms; this report will also be presented during this event.

Many European countries already have parliamentary science advice mechanisms: offering scientific evidence and enabling better communication between science, society, and parliamentarians. But how do these parliamentary science advice mechanisms work in general and how do parliamentary offices for science and technology operate in particular? How do they choose the topics they work on to provide science advice? What role can they play in managing unexpected situations and crises, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic? 

Join the discussion next Thursday 10 December (1pm – 2.30pm CET)

With representatives of four parliamentary science advice mechanisms from the United Kingdom, Finland, the Netherlands and Portugal.
