Communicating Science in the COVID-19 Pandemic
On 18 November 2020 EASAC organised a virtual Science Communications Webinar. This was a special meeting for fellows and staff of EASAC Member Academies on "Communicating Science in the COVID-19 Pandemic". The agenda of the meeting can be found here.
The meeting is based on a preceding survey on the communication activities of the EASAC Member Academies during the crisis. A summary of the meeting can be found here.
IAP-EASAC Regional Workshop / 10-12 September 2018, Halle (Germany)
Implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals: How can academies help?
The workshop has engaged interested EASAC member academies and representatives of National Young Academies in the region; national and regional policy-makers responsible for SDGs’ implementation and review; and one or two other practitioners and implementation agencies.
This workshop has built on EASAC's previous experience and learning on the sciene-policy interface with the help of a survey of its members about the SDGs which was conducted ahead of the workshop in August/September 2018.
Below you can find the presentations which were held during this workshop:
Falk Schmidt: The 2030 Agenda –and the roles for Science
Christiane Diehl: Academies working together regionally in EU
Gabriela Wülser: Engaging with the SDGs - The Swiss case

Science-Policy Dialogue Project
In 2010-2012, and with funding from IAP - The Global Network of Science Academies, EASAC member academies ran a joint project on "Science-Policy Dialogue".
The objective of the project:
- to improve academies' dialogue with policy-makers - both on a national and an EU-level
- to make policy-makers and further public stakeholders aware of the National Science Academies' excellent resource of independent scientific knowledge and expertise
- to encourage them to use these resources for science-related policy decisions
- to strengthen the quality of National Science Academies' dialogue with policy-makers and public stakeholders/opinion leaders
- to invigorate and deepen the co-operation among EASAC member academies
As a result of that project, EASAC academies produced a Good Practice Guidance.
