Research4Policy showcases European Commission - United Nations Environment Programme collaboration in an innovative manner to make environmental science actionable for policy making and civil society action to solve pressing ecological questions of our time.
As part of the Knowledge from Science to SOcietieS (KNOSSOS) project, Research4Policy aims to bridge the gap between available scientific evidence and policy making in the environment field. Its approach is that a sound knowledge base will lead to more effective environment policies.
KNOSSOS therefore starts by taking stock of EU & international environmental scientific research activities, filtering out key information for decision makers & policy makers. Civil society groups are also woven into the project’s outputs, especially those who promote environmental issues publicly.
