ASSETS is helping to organise the workshop “Policy & Science: Who defines the problem?”. The workshop will take place in Central London on the 7th of July 2014. Approximately 30 participants from India, Bangladesh, Malawi and Colombia and several other countries will discuss how scientists and policy maker can interact in a most efficient way to work together on all big challenges of todays life. Even if we would be proud to come up with great solution we understand this would be a bit too ambitious for a one day workshop. So the aim of the day is to identify key questions and find good action points which will be developed further in the follow-up of the workshop.
Participation is on invitation only.
