The initiative “Science meets Parliaments was launched in September 2015 by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission together with European Parliament’s panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA). The goal is to strengthen the role of science in political processes by promoting a regular dialogue between scientists and policy-makers, in order to encourage an evidence-informed decision-making.

This fourth edition will focus its attention on the great challenges of 21th century and in particular on some current topics:
- the impact of artificial intelligence on our lives;
- the need of building resilient societies in a turbulent world;
- the role of values and social relations for what concerns political behaviour and policy-making.

The agenda also includes the launch of the pilot project called “Science meets Parliaments/Science meets Regions”, which aims to encourage a wider involvement by national and regional authorities and to make local political issues come to light.

The event will take place on February 6th-7th, 2019, at the European Parliament in Bruxelles, in Paul Henri Spaak building (PHS).
