Scientific program

Scientific expertise today has robust conceptual, methodological, organizational and ethical foundations that make up its strength, including from the perspective of public decision-making.

In a context of great uncertainty and faced with high pressure constraints, scientific expertise has nonetheless been able to play its role in shedding light on public decision-making. Still, criticism has emerged: over the long term, but also in times of crisis, as currently seen with Covid-19. The means and conditions can thus pose an additional challenge to scientific expertise-related communication and its utilisation.

How can these tensions be resolved while capitalising on the benefits that have been reaped from the Covid-19 crisis?
