Episode Info: The relationship between science and policy can be difficult at the best of times. Professor Sir John Beddington knows this better than most. In his time as the United Kingdom's Chief Scientific Advisor, he dealt with a number of emergencies, including the swine flu epidemic, the volcanic ash incident that closed Eastern Atlantic air space, and the Fukushima nuclear incident. In this week’s Policy Forum Pod, Professor Beddington discusses the state of science in public policy around the world and what scientists can do to get policymakers listening to the evidence. Professor Sir John Beddington was a guest at the recent Policy Forum, Crawford School of Public Policy, and The Economics and Science Group event ‘Bridging science, economics and policy silos‘.
