WHO WE ARE

The Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) was established by the University of Cambridge to strengthen the contribution of science and technology to public policy. CSaP fulfils its mission by facilitating interaction between government and academia, so that governments have better access to academic expertise, and academic research is better informed about public policy. CSaP builds and supports networks between the worlds of policy and academia that lead to effective knowledge exchange, trust and mutual understanding.

WHAT OUR EXPERIENCE IS

CSaP runs a Policy Fellowship Programme, convenes groups of policy makers and academics to address particular policy challenges, and carries out research on the nature of the relationship between science and public policy. 

WHAT WE DO IN EU BON

CSaP leads the stakeholder engagement and science- policy dialogue work package. CSaP will support knowledge exchange with policy makers throughout EU BON through building insights from the context of use into the design of biodiversity data platforms so that the outputs of EU BON are more likely to be taken up by policy makers and make a positive contribution to improving public policy and biodiversity conservation outcomes.

IN EU BON WE MAINLY CONTRIBUTE TO

WP 6 (Lead) Stakeholder engagement and science- policy dialogue
WP 7 Implementation of GEO BON: strategies and solutions at European and global levels
