The 2020 EGU science-policy pairing scheme with MEP Maria Spyraki

To help promote a culture of evidence-informed policymaking and encourage stronger science-policy partnerships, the EGU will once again sponsor a scientist to work alongside a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for one week later this year. The second edition of EGU’s science-policy pairing scheme will pair Renée Bichler, EGU member and German Aerospace Center PhD Candidate, with Maria Spyraki, an MEP representing Greece and the Group of the European People’s Party in the European Parliament. Due to COVID restrictions, the 2020/21 pairing scheme will be hosted virtually.

Ms Spyraki represents Greece and the Group of the European People’s Party in the European Parliament. Ms. Spyraki is the co-chair of the Intergroup on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development and rapporteur at the European Green Deal ‘Renovation Wave’ for the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) Committee. She is particularly interested in energy efficiency, circular economy, and environmental issues.

Due to COVID restrictions, the 2020/21 pairing scheme will take place virtually.
