MAGIC at the EU-AU-IIASA Event

30 August 2016

Violeta Cabello (UAB) took part in the EU-AU-IIASA Evidence and Policy Event, Joint Research Centre (JRC) – Ispra (IT), August 30 – September 2 2016. During the event, the MAGIC project was presented in a dedicated poster session.

In a complex world, evidence-based policymaking can enhance the effectiveness of public policies. To develop the necessary skills for improving practices in better integrating evidence into policy-making, the European and African Union Commissions together with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) are organising a highly participatory evidence and policy event. Participants will develop their working practices, skills, behaviours and methods, in both the scientific and policy-making domains via masterclasses and group work. This year, we invited applications from policy officers and scientists developing policy and conducting research in the field of the Water-Energy-Food nexus. The event aims to meet the following main goals:

  • Enhance participants’ skills in integrating evidence into policy-making.
  • Create a community of practice that will continue to collaborate afterwards.
  • Stimulate the participants to share their new skills and learning with their colleagues.
