EASAC supports position of Chief Scientific Advisor | 07.08.14

 

EASAC has signed two letters recently in support of the continuation of the position of Chief Scientific Advisor to the European Commission's President.

The first letter, dated 4 July 2014, was a joint letter by the 4 European academy networks ALLEA, EASAC, Euro-CASE and FEAM and the pan-European Academy Academia Europaea, addressed to the President-elect of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker.

The second letter, of 24 July 2014, was a direct reply to calls from a group of NGOs that the post of CSA be abolished. This letter points out that independent science advice is needed for European citizens to have confidence in the way policies are developed.

EASAC has also written to EU President Juncker in November 2014, voicing its concern over the abolition of the position of CSA.
