Workshops are organised by the policy departments and enable members to put questions to and exchange views with experts on subjects associated with parliamentary business or subjects of current interest. They are not necessarily held in public but may be held during a committee meeting.

European Science-Media Hub Knowledge Lab ‘Tackling misinformation and disinformation in science’

The purpose of the lab/workshop will be to exchange good practices in tackling misinformation and disinformation in science, via the presentation of “case studies”, illustrating existing relevant initiatives touching upon different science disciplines. The format of the workshop is participatory, as the audience will be actively involved in the debate of the case studies and engaged in the topic.
