This exceptional moment for science policy has provided the impetus for a deep reflection on and renewed activity to strengthen the ISC’s work within the science policy sphere, and to increase engagement with the different audiences for scientific content.

Science in and for the intergovernmental system
In March 2021 an international steering group was appointed to propose a strategy for the ISC to increase its visibility and impact in the intergovernmental system and strengthen the voice of science in global policy processes.
Public value of science
The public value of science project is interrogating thinking on how perceptions of science inform policy.
The ISC partnered with BBC StoryWorks to develop ‘Unlocking Science’: a multimedia hub featuring films, dynamic articles and podcasts.
Affiliated bodies: INGSA
2021 was an important year for the International Network for Governmental Science Advice (INGSA), which continued to address the visibility of evidence-to-policy mechanisms during the pandemic, using its role as a global convenor on the big issues at the intersection between science, policy and society.
