POLICY AND PRACTICE - Three Sages on Improving Scientific Advice to Government

Episode Summary

2022 will see the launch of the long awaited Covid inquiry. One key set of issues will involve the role of scientific advice: how it is gathered, and co-ordinated; how it is fed in to ministers; how uncertain or conflicting advice is handled; how transparent and accountable the whole process is; and how to improve the handling of scientific advice in future.

Episode Notes

In this seminar we will hear from Professor John Edmunds OBE, Professor Dame Theresa Marteau, and Professor Michael Parker.
