2. Panel on 'the science-policy interface', Fanelli, Jasanoff, Taylor and Tyler (Circling the Square I)
From Andrew Gibson
The session primarily covered transparency in science and the role of science advisors in politics and policy-making, with a particular case study on nuclear waste management in Scotland. It was followed by a lively Q&A about, among other things, whether science advice is always politicised and whether academics can and should overcome their trepidation about involvement with policy-making processes.
