In 2015, the EU's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the European Parliament Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) launched "Science Meets Parliaments/Regions".
The aim is to build closer links between scientists, science and policy makers/politicians to promote a culture of evidence-informed policymaking.
