On behalf of the EnTrust consortium, we are glad to invite you to watch the debate  “Evidence-informed policy making and the role of ‘knowledge-intermediaries’: Discussion around the EnTrust Manual for Evidence-informed Policy Making”, that will take place online on 19 March 2024, 12:00 – 13:00 CET. 

The event will discuss the role of scientific evidence in policy making, its current challenges and future paths. In this context, it will also reflect upon the role that  ‘knowledge-intermediaries’ (e.g. parliamentary research services, think tanks, consultants, journalists) have in detecting, processing and presenting policy-relevant evidence for the use of policymakers. 

The EnTrust project has drafted a Manual for Evidence-informed Policy Making that sheds light on the problems policy making encounters in identifying and using relevant evidence, and the potential processes and paths to find and capitalise on it. The event will see the participation of speakers from the world of ‘knowledge-intermediaries’: the discussion will provide feedback to the draft of the manual and offer opportunities to exchange experiences about the role and work of knowledge intermediaries.
