Scientific advice for policy-makers in the European Union

Scientific knowledge has become a key element in the policy-making process, alongside societal values and political considerations.

Scientific knowledge has become a key element in the policy-making process, alongside societal values and political considerations. As a consequence, stronger science advice systems have been developed to provide timely and useful scientific advice to policy-makers in both legislative and executive bodies. Such systems for the provision of advice integrate various institutions and structures in order to address adequately the specific needs of policy-makers: providing strong scientific expertise in an accessible format; informing the development of long-term policies as well as providing advice during emergencies and crises; and providing advice proactively through foresight activities and reactively at the request of policy-makers. Global challenges put additional pressure on science advice systems, requiring them to address issues that are both multidisciplinary and multijurisdictional. The improvement of cooperation between science advisory bodies across geo-political borders has been recognised. Experts also call for the definition of common guidelines and principles for the production of science advice. In the European Union, systems are evolving at national level as well as in the EU institutions. Following the abolition of the position of Chief Scientific Adviser to the President of the European Commission in 2014, a new Science Advice Mechanism (SAM) consisting of a 'High Level Group' and a unit in DG Research is expected to be established in Autumn 2015. The SAM aims to improve the coordination of the science advice system within the European Commission and the interaction with the science advice systems of Member States.

Stoiber Group on administrative burdens in EU law: better law-making in action

17-11-2014

The High-Level Group on Administrative Burdens or the Stoiber Group was established in 2007 as an independent body to advise the European Commission on its planned Action Programme for administrative burden reduction (ABR) in respect of EU legislation. The latter programme set a 25 per cent reduction target by 2012, covering 13 policy areas. On 14 October 2014, at the presentation of the group's Final Report to then Commission President José Manuel Barroso, Mr Stoiber invited the Commission ...

The High-Level Group on Administrative Burdens or the Stoiber Group was established in 2007 as an independent body to advise the European Commission on its planned Action Programme for administrative burden reduction (ABR) in respect of EU legislation. The latter programme set a 25 per cent reduction target by 2012, covering 13 policy areas. On 14 October 2014, at the presentation of the group's Final Report to then Commission President José Manuel Barroso, Mr Stoiber invited the Commission to continue its efforts to make EU law lighter, simpler and less costly. The Final Report acknowledges that there has been a recent shift in culture within the Commission and urges the Commission to go further, for example by seeking to calculate the total net cost of legislation as precisely as possible. EU member states should be tasked with indicating clearly where minimum requirements have been exceeded, with the aim of revealing any potentially unnecessary ‘gold-plating’ at national level. Background The Stoiber group’s work was organised in three successive rounds or ‘mandates’, and its final mandate came to an end on 31 October 2014, at the end of the five-year term of the second Barroso Commission. As explained in detail in the Final Report, the first mandate of the Stoiber Group helped the Commission to evaluate administrative burdens on business and other stake-holders, and to shape related proposals in the Action Programme. During its second mandate, the group focused on reducing administrative burdens through the better transposition of EU laws by the 28 member states, whilst during its third mandate, the group focussed on policy towards small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in this field.
