The workshop will take place on 7 May in Belval.

How important is it to you, that EU-politicians base their decisions on scientific studies and facts? And should EU-politicians explain to their voters what evidence they used when they take a decision in Parliament?

The FNR (Fonds National de la Recherche) is organising a workshop around this topic and is currently looking for participants! (citizens & researchers)

The workshop (in English) will take place on Tuesday, 7 May from 13:30 until 16:30 at the Maison du Savoir in Belval. You don't need any special prior knowledge to participate. Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

We also offer lunch, from 12:00 until 13:30, so that all the participants can get to know each other before the workshop. If you want to join the lunch, simply add this information to the mail.

Are you interested? Send us an e-mail to info@fnr.lu!

This workshop brings researchers and civil society together to discuss the role of science and evidence in politics. An overall aim is to create a "draft of expectations" about how the European Parliament should use and scrutinise evidence.

This project is a collaboration with Sense about Science, a campaigning charity that challenges the misrepresentation of science and evidence in public life. It's an EU pilot – similar workshops are being organised in other EU countries.

A first workshop has already taken place in January 2019. Click here for more information about our last workshop.
