26 Sep 2017 - 26 Jul 2017


On September 26, Roberta will be attending the annual conference of the JRC of the European Commission. The conference is entitled EU4facts. Evidence for policy in a post-fact world.

The conference will address the following issues:

  • Why should we trust science? – The role of science in times of fake news and ‘filter bubbles’.
  • Re-designing policymaking using behavioural and decision science – How can evidence and data be effectively balanced with values and emotions when policy decisions are taken?

Questions can be tweeted with the hashtag #EU4Facts.
