Science for Policy Reports

Recently, lots of Governments around the world go to the scientific community for advice to try to provide an answer to topics that, as poverty or climate change, are social concerns, but also problems that researchers are trying to understand. The covid-19 pandemic is an example of this practice, because there was an answer on behalf of scientists that not only showed the ability to bring new knowledges to the service of the citizenship, but also was patent of its great interest and motivation to do it.

The male and female researchers of CSIC, individually or collectively organized, participate in several hundreds of governmental counseling committees in all Administration levels, also in the European area and in all areas of public policy, such as sanitary, social, agriculture, fisheries, feeding, foreign policy, security, environmental, energetic, cultural, digital or the scientific policy itself, among others. Thanks to this counselling, the public authorities can know how much fishing quotas should be limited, how to manage aquariums, how many vaccines would be necessary to reach immunity or what aspects should be financed to make further progress in the fight against cancer.

CSIC Scientific Challenges: Towards 2030

What are the significant scientific challenges of the first half of the 21st century? Can we establish the priorities for the future? How should the scientific community tackle them?

These books present the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) reflections on 14 strategic themes established based on their scientific impact and social importance.

Fundamental questions are addressed, including the origin of life, the exploration of the universe, artificial intelligence, the development of clean, safe, efficient energy, or the understanding of brain function. The documents identify complex challenges in health and social sciences, and the selected strategic themes cover both fundamental issues and potential applications of knowledge.

Nearly 1,100 researchers from more than 100 CSIC centers and other institutions (public research organizations, universities, etc.) have participated in this analysis. All agree on the need for a multidisciplinary approach and the promotion of collaborative research to implement ambitious projects focused on specific topics.

These 14 “White Papers,” designed to serve as a frame of reference for the development of the institution’s scientific strategy, will provide an insight into the research currently being accomplished at the CSIC, and at the same time, build a global vision of what will be the critical scientific challenges over the next decade.
