European Science Advice for Policy

acatech is the coordinator of the EU project SAPEA – Science Advice for Policy by European Academies. Since November 2016, five European academies are part of the European Commission’s Scientific Advisory Mechanism (SAM) within the framework of the SAPEA project. Politically relevant scientific questions are dealt with in an interdisciplinary and independent manner based on state-of-the-art scientific evidence. The SAPEA Evidence Reports form the scientific basis for the opinions of the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors (GCSA) to the College of European Commissioners. More
