How can science contribute to the quality of parliamentary work? And how can policy facilitate scientists to do their work optimally? This and more will be discussed during the Knowledge (Counterfeit) Force mini-symposium to be held on Monday 15 November in The Hague. The program can be followed through a live broadcast from 3.30 pm.
The symposium will be held in honor of the tenth anniversary of Parliament and the Scientific Partnership. The aim of this collaboration is to use current scientific insights into the parliamentary process. To this end, the Chamber of Deputies collaborates structurally with six scientific organizations: the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), De Jonge Academy, Association of Universities (VSNU), Dutch Scientific Research Organization (NWO), TNO and the Dutch Federation of University Medical Centers (NFU).
