El asesoramiento científico ante el imperativo político, por Francisco García Olmedo
Multitud de decisiones políticas deben tener en cuenta los consejos científicos, lo que no quiere decir que deban atenerse a ellos. Basta con que el imperativo político no condicione al informe científico y que los hechos no se distorsionen a favor de una tesis política preestablecida. Una testigo privilegiada viene a decirnos que estos requisitos no se cumplen siempre en el ámbito de la Comisión Europea. Se trata de mi colega Anne Glover, catedrática de Biología Molecular y Celular en la Universidad de Aberdeen, quien fue científica-jefe del Gobierno escocés hasta que, en 2011, José Manuel Durão Barroso la nombró para el puesto equivalente en la Comisión Europea, el de principal responsable del asesoramiento científico al Gobierno comunitario. Aunque sus consejos deben ser confidenciales, Glover no viene teniendo ningún empacho a la hora de opinar públicamente sobre las cuestiones científicas más espinosas y, más recientemente en una conferencia, sobre el problema de la injerencia política en los informes científicos que se presentan a la Comisión.

CoverScience Education in Europe: National Policies, Practices and Research
The study examines the organisation of science teaching in Europe and provides an overview of existing policies and strategies that aim at improving and fostering science teaching and learning today. It looks at support measures available to teachers and schools for boosting students' motivation and interest in science. The study also contains a literature review on science education, main findings from the international surveys PISA and TIMSS as well as results from a Eurydice pilot survey (SITEP) on the content of initial teacher education programmes. It covers 31 countries (all EU Member States, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey) and takes the reference year 2010/11. [+]

Ciencia al servicio de Europa 2008

Science at the service of Europe.
For the last three years, the EC's Directorate-General for Research (DG RTD) has produced a brochure based on its Annual Activity Report outlining the year's main events and achievements, illustrated by some examples of successfully completed projects.
This year's brochure will be similar to previous versions, but the successful projects illustrated will be ones funded under the EU's 7th Framework Programme. It will also present information and results of completed projects from the previous Framework Programme.  The publication will only be available in English.
Please consult here the pdf version of the last brochure, which was produced in 2008, for information. To order paper copies of this year's brochure, please visit this page. Orders should be made before 30 September 2010, if possible. [+]

CoverScience and Technology Report.
Special Eurobarometer 340, June 2010.
The findings of this survey have been analysed firstly at EU level and secondly by country. The current survey has been significantly modified since previous surveys but where possible results will be compared with the 2005 survey. Where appropriate, a variety of socio-demographic variables - such as respondents’ gender, age, education and occupation - have been used to provide additional analysis. Many of the questions listed as topics above have also been used as key variables in the analysis to gain a deeper insight into Europeans’ views on science and technology6. Where relevant results of other studies are also discussed.
This Eurobarometer survey is commissioned by the European Commission’s Directorate General (DG) for Research Training and Development, and is coordinated by DG Communication. It is carried out by TNS Opinion & Social network in February 2010. The methodology used is that of Eurobarometer surveys as carried out by the Directorate General for Communication (“Research and Political Analysis” Unit). A technical note on the manner in which interviews were conducted by the Institutes within the TNS Opinion & Social network is appended as an annex to this report. This note indicates the interview methods and the confidence intervals. [+]
