Enlightenment 2.0

I have been selected as advisor for the steering committee and reviewer for the European Commission Joint Research Center Enlightenment 2.0 enterprise. Enlightenment 2.0 will start with a flagship report on science policy/science communication, and what we know about the drivers for political decisions. It will go on as a broader enterprise for experts in science advice who wish to support policy makers, helping them make informed decisions on EU issues. The first meeting has taken place in Brussels on May 30-31. Stay tuned for more!
