About the European Academies’ Science Advisory Council (EASAC)#

EASAC is formed by the national science academies of the EU Member States, Norway, Switzerland and the UK, to collaborate in giving advice to European policy-makers. EASAC provides a means for the collective voice of European science to be heard. Through EASAC, the academies work together to provide independent, evidence-based advice about the scientific aspects of European policies to those who make or influence policy within the European institutions. Drawing on the memberships and networks of the academies, EASAC accesses the best of European science in carrying out its work. Its views are vigorously independent of commercial or political bias, and it is open and transparent in its processes.

About the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM)#

FEAM is the European Federation of National Academies of Medicine and Medical Sections of Academies of Sciences. It brings together under one umbrella 23 National Academies representing thousands of the best scientists in Europe. FEAM’s mission is to promote cooperation between National Academies of Medicine and Medical Sections of Academies of Sciences in Europe; to provide a platform to formulate their collective voice on matters concerning human and animal medicine, biomedical research, education, and health with a European dimension; and to extend to the European authorities the advisory role that they exercise in their own countries on these matters.
