Sense about Science EU is an independent campaigning NGO that monitors the use and abuse of scientific evidence in EU policy. Launched in July 2016, Sense about Science EU is calling for EU citizens, researchers and the European Parliament to scrutinise and share evidence behind European policymaking. Our office in Brussels is led by Sofie Vanthournout who is actively promoting citizen involvement in evidence-based policy making. Sense about Science has seen the difference citizens and researchers can make in policy making and Sense about Science EU stands up for the public interest in evidence- based policy. We encourage all to challenge potential false claims through our 'Ask for Evidence' campaign in a bid to moblise citizens and scientific groups in policy making. We aim to build a network of early career researcher across the EU to encourage them to actively present and ask for evidence. We are further mobilising citizens by organising an Evidence Matters event in which citizens spend the day in European Parliament explaining why evidence based policy is important to them. Furthermore we plan to create an educational film explaining where evidence fits in EU policy making to ensure all understand the system behind EU policy. If you care about evidence in policymaking, get in contact to share ideas, join one of our initiatives, follow us on social media or sign up to our newsletter! We'd love to hear from you!
