6th BfR Stakeholder Conference on "Scientific political consulting in the area of conflict between politics, science and the general public"

(18.11.2016)

On November 18th 2016, the 6th BfR Stakeholder Conference entitled "Scientific political consulting in the area of conflict between politics, science and the general public" will take place.

The event is to be dedicated to the question of which role scientific political consulting can and should play. If it wants to be scientifically upright, for example, should it see itself in the role of an "honest broker", who presents politics with all available scientific evidence in a well-balanced way?

To do so, the conditions under which scientific know-how can form the foundation of political decisions have to be identified along with whatever constraints there may be. In essence, it should be all about defining the role of scientific political consulting in and for society more precisely: What should it do and what can it do, as well as what can it not and what should it not do!

The conference will be held in German and interpreted into English.
