Symposia: Informed decision making for planetary wellbeing I: the challenge of science-policy-society interfacing in the European context
call closes when slots are filled
1) Introduction: The challenge of science-policy interfacing in the European context and establishing a Knowledge and Learning Mechanism on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (EKLIPSE) (Carsten Neßhöver, Marianne Darbi, Marie Vandewalle, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research, Germany, confirmed)
2) Engaging science-policy-society dialogue on European scale: the example of EKLIPSE Science Cafes (Riikka Paloniemi, Liisa Varumo, Finnish Environment Institute, Finland, Eszter Kelemen, Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary, confirmed)
3) What does the science say? The diversity of methods to synthesize knowledge (Lynn Dicks, University of East Anglia, confirmed)
4) The TEEB experience – transferring an international science-policy process to the national level, lessons from Germany on The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (Heidi Wittmer, Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research, Germany, tbc)
5) IPBES - the international perspective: Connecting global assessment processes with European and national level – lessons from the perspective of a global science-policy interface (Isabel Sousa Pinto, University of Porto, Portugal, confirmed)
6) The Hungarian national ecosystem services assessment – an example for a national level science-policy interface (Eszter Kelemen, Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary, confirmed)
Science-policy-society interfacing spans across a large spectrum of stakeholders, activities and projects. Therefore, in this session we have explicitly foreseen two free slots open to abstract submission from any relevant discipline or project that brings in a new perspective on science-policy-society interfacing (or a specific aspect thereof). We expect a high interest, but could alternatively invite presentations on additional national level examples or projects (e.g. OpenNESS).
7) Practical example from a specific national context in Europe or EU project (NN)
8) Practical example from a specific national context in Europe or EU project (NN)
a) Goal / Objective: The session aims to reflect on both concepts and implementation examples of science-policy-society interactions. This includes also the discussion of challenges and opportunities and consequently to build the awareness across participants and invite them to play an active role in the future.
b) Contribution to the Planetary Wellbeing –theme: In order to ensure that decision making takes an integrative view on Planetary Wellbeing, it must be informed by best available knowledge from science and other knowledge holders. Science-policy-society interfacing is increasingly important to provide structured and transparent mechanisms and processes for this.
c) Creativity of approach or diversity in points-of-view: The session takes an integrative view beyond disciplinary boundaries and is solutions driven. It provides a diversity of points-of-view from conceptual and practical level as well as from different spatial scales.
d) Anticipated audience and expected number of attendees: mainly scientists from all kinds of disciplines, but also policy makers and civil society, 30-40.
e) We aim to conclude the presentations and discussion of the symposium in Letter to be submitted in the special issue on planetary wellbeing in Conservation Biology.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
