Policy Advice Task Group

This is a new Task Group formed December 2020.

The Policy Advice Task Group lead is Nicole Biebow, AWI (EU-PolarNet and ARICE), and co-lead is Gustav Sigeman, Uppsala University (JUSTNORTH)science policy

This group:

  • Includes points of contact for advice representing the expertise of their respective EU Polar Cluster project;
  • Will promote a close cooperation between the EU Polar Cluster projects in organising policy briefings or other joint actions.

Tasks:

  • To provide fast responses as required to the EC and national decision makers to address any urgent needs and demands for scientific advice;
  • To transfer scientific knowledge to regional, national and EU-level policymakers to contribute to evidence-based decision making;
  • To interactwith all EU Polar Cluster projects to utilise their expertise for policy advice.

Plans for joint activities

  • Used the pool of expertise in the Cluster to support your projects own events/plans;
  • Gain more attention by jointly organising Policy briefings or Town Hall Meetings to inform decision makers on Polar topics of high political relevance;
  • Consider to jointly produce briefing documents and/orthematicfact sheets targeted to policy makers.
