Part of this blog (till June 2015) is historical material, "frozen in time." The blog posts dated prior June 1 2015 will no longer changed. Some links to external web sites and internal pages will not work.
How can scientific results best be used in the political decision making? The Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters is organising an international symposium focusing on this question. Politicians may often have legitimate expectations for clear and simple answers to the questions being discussed politically at a given time because they must take decisions, but science explores the frontiers of knowledge, where answers are uncertain and can only be corroborated by detailed studies and broad discussion of complex questions. As such, the interaction between politicians and scientists may often involve expectation gaps between the parties.
This theme will be discussed by politicians and scientists. Participation is open to all interested in the theme. However, attendance will be limited to 80 participants. Registration is open for foreign participants, whereas Danish participants may register by 10 August 2013.
