On 31 May 2016 the European Parliament’s (EP) Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA) Panel hosted a joint workshop along with UNESCO and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) to examine the key findings of the ‘UNESCO Science Report: Towards 2030’.
UNESCO examines every five years the domestic and international enabling environment for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI). The ‘UNESCO Science Report: Towards 2030’, published in 2015, is the 6th edition of this report. It profiles 140 countries and delivers further information on another 49, covering the period between 2010 to 2015. This is a special period, as the report examines the status of the enabling environment in the aftermath of the economic crisis.
