Bridging the gap

From research to action - Bridging the Gap - A conference on research and policy in Stockholm 9-11 May

What is the missing link between research and policy? How can the time lag between research results and action be shortened? These are questions for an international conference on policy and sustainability research Bridging the Gap in Stockholm, 9-11 May.

Speakers include Philippe Busquin, EU Commissioner for Research and Margot Wallström, EU Commissioner for Environment. Among other speakers are the Swedish Minister for the Environment Kjell Larsson, Minister for Education and Science Thomas Östros and the Belgian Federation Environment Minister Magda Alvoet.

The conference will contribute both to the EU 6th Environmental Action Programme and the Strategy for Sustainable Development, which are on the agenda for the Gothenburg summit. Another important issue under Bridging the Gap is the development of a "European Research Area" – about how scientists can contribute to a sustainable development.

Special plenary sessions include the importance of scientific research for climate policy, health and opportunities for integrating the environment into the transport sector.

Bridging the Gap is hosted by the Swedish Government, jointly organised by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the EU Commission and the European Environment Agency (EEA). Programme and updated information on
