Considering the crucial relationship between science and policy, on 26 September the European Commission organizes the EU4FACTS: Evidence for policy in a post-fact world conference with the aim to produce a set of clear recommendations for successful evidence-informed policy making.

I also invite all young researchers to participate in the Foods 2017 Travel Awards.
