The Directorate for Structural and Cohesion Policies and the Committee on Culture and Education, in collaboration with the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, held a workshop with experts on the ambivalent relationship between science and politics.

The main purpose of this workshop was to bring together academic scholars and practitioners of scientific policy advice with a view to discuss what scientific evidence can realistically do in and for politics, and how such evidence could be communicated to and used by policy makers both effectively and responsibly.
