Meeting of EASAC President with CSA Anne Glover

On Tuesday 12 February, a small EASAC group met with Commission President Barroso's Chief Scientific Advisor (CSA), Prof. Anne Glover, to discuss the details of the future collaboration between her and the National Academies of the EU Member States. The group consisted of EASAC President Prof. Sir Brian Heap, President-Elect Prof. Jos van der Meer, Past President Prof. Volker ter Meulen and Executive Director Dr Christiane Diehl. The discussion focused on how the scientific expertise of the academies could be best fed into the policy-making processes of the EU. The CSA also updated the EASAC group on some of the activities she was engaged in, notably an initiative to establish a network of national science advisors to the governments of EU member states. The CSA has confirmed that she will attend the next meeting of EASAC Council, on 6-7 June at the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.
