Supporting Leaders

We live in a fast-paced and interconnected world where breakthrough technologies, demographic shifts and political transformations have far-reaching societal and economic consequences. More than ever, leaders need to share insights and innovations on how to best navigate the future.

The European Institute for Science, Media and Democracy provides leaders with the knowledge, analysis and skills to navigate the complexity of science’s impact in the world.

Never before in human history has so much scientific knowledge been available and so easily accessible. We have the means to understand the challenges we face and to make effective policies. Nevertheless the record in delivering truly evidence-based policy is mixed, at best and is cause of considerable frustration to scientists.

The European Institute for Science, Media and Democracy coordinates and supports a European network of leading universities, media and businesses that provide interdisciplinary and intersectoral information on science and innovation.
