In a world marked by complexity, evidence-based policymaking is critical to enhance the effectiveness of public policies and thus ensure the well-being of citizens. To develop the necessary skills for improving practices in better integrating evidence into policy-making, the European and African Union Commissions together with IIASA will be co-organising a capacity development event. Its purpose is for African and European scientists and policymakers to better understand the constraints and demands from both the scientific and the policy-making perspective and to develop together new skills in using evidence for policy. The call for applications for participation closed on 29 April 2016.
