This event will celebrate UK’s and Chile’s commitment to collaborate on promoting excellence in science-based policy-making and will launch a new report "Science Advice in the UK". The report summarises more than 70 years of UK experience on science advice to the Government & Parliament and aims to serve as inspiration for other countries seeking to establish similar systems.
