GYA member Yoko Shimpuku, (Hiroshima University, Japan), Chair of the GYA’s AGM 2022, and Alma Hernández-Mondragón (Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico) were moderators.
The 44 participants of the workshop were divided into small groups with the mentors and discussed the challenges and future of science advice.
The participants discussed ways of bridging gaps between scientists and policy-makers, as well as the role of the GYA as the hub of developing scientists in science advice.
