European approach to the organisation of scientific advice in the agricultural sector

Question for written answer  E-001383/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Tom Vandenkendelaere (PPE)

Research institutions in the European Union carry out excellent work. In the agricultural sector, among others, the large body of research, in some cases pioneering, is crucial to attaining the objectives of the Green Deal and the ‘farm to fork’ strategy. In several institutions there is, however, a feeling that everyone is working in isolation, without any possibility of joint organisation within the European Union as ‘science’. In certain other sectors, such as food safety or chemical substances, this is far more emphatically the case. To further improve the sustainability of the agricultural sector and promote innovation in this sector in particular, there is a need for greater harmonisation and organised coordination by the European Union to ensure that science is able to organise itself, so that it can have a greater impact on policy.
