SCIENCE ADVICE FOR POLICY
BY EUROPEAN ACADEMIES

About SAPEA

What we do

SAPEA is part of the European Commission’s Scientific Advice Mechanism. Together with the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors, we provide independent scientific advice to European Commissioners to support their decision-making. We also work to raise awareness of scientific advice and evidence in policymaking, and to stimulate debate in Europe about these issues.

Who we are

SAPEA is a consortium of academy networks. Across these networks, we bring together outstanding expertise from natural sciences, engineering and technology, medical, health, agricultural and social sciences, and the humanities. We draw on over a hundred academies, young academies and learned societies in more than 40 countries across Europe.

Governance and staff

The central body for SAPEA decision-making is the Board, which consists of the presidents of the networks that make up SAPEA.

Our staff team is distributed across several countries and takes care of the day-to-day running of the consortium, as well as managing work on our scientific topics.
