Research Breakfast: How Science Informs Policy with Sir Peter Gluckman
Sir Peter Gluckman, Former-Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand, visits Humanomics Research Centre 28th May 2019
28.05.2019 kl. 09.30 - 11.00
For democracy to thrive, dialogue and decision-making need to be informed by scientific evidence and sound advice. On complex policy issues, governments, parliaments and local authorities need to have access to robust analysis, scholarship and expertise. Yet, governmental decision-makers increasingly find themselves confronted by mistrust and misinformation. In an era of ‘information overload’, democracy requires careful attention to science advisory systems, skills and institutions. In this seminar, Sir Peter Gluckman will provide a unique critical synthesis of the current state-of-art of international governmental science advise.
Humanomics Research Centre (AAU) is pleased to announce this unique breakfast event. As the former-Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand, the International Science Council President-elect and the Chair of the International Network of Government Science Advice (INGSA), Sir Peter Gluckman is a global leader in exploring and providing science advice to governments.
The seminar is free and open to everyone but registration is required. Please send an e-mail to Louise Berg Larsson: email@example.com.
