Hello everybody, my name is Jan Marco Müller. I work for the Joint Research Centre (JRC), which is the European Commission’s in-house science service. Between August and December 2015 I am doing a fellowship at the Center for Science & Technology Policy of the University of Colorado in Boulder, working closely with Roger Pielke, jr. On this blog I want to write regularly about my fellowship and share my views on different topics related to the fascinating field called “science advice to policy-making”. Having worked at the science-policy interface for 15 years, including three years managing the office of the former Chief Scientific Adviser of the European Commission Professor Dame Anne Glover, I have seen quite a lot of things that are worth sharing. Stay tuned!
Please note that this blog is personal. The views expressed do not necessarily reflect the official position of the European Commission.
