The 2020/21 EGU science-policy pairing scheme: Renée Bichler and 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 paired 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 was be hosted virtually. You can read more about Bichler’s experience here and listen to a panel discussion about the scheme here.
