Science Advice for Policy by European Academies


The SAPEA project is part of the European Scientific Advice Mechanism and
funded by the European Union under the grant agreement N°101070776.


Together with the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors, SAPEA provides independent scientific advice to European Commissioners to support their decision-making. SAPEA also works to raise awareness of scientific advice and evidence in policymaking, and to stimulate debate in Europe about these issues.

SAPEA is a consortium of academy networks. Across these networks, SAPEA brings together outstanding expertise from natural sciences, engineering and technology, medical, health, agricultural and social sciences, and the humanities. SAPEA draws on over a hundred academies, young academies and learned societies in more than 40 countries across Europe.

The European Academy Networks


Academia Europaea

Academia Europaea is a European non-governmental association acting as an Academy. Founded in 1988, it now numbers around 4500 members, including leading experts from the physical sciences and technology, biological sciences and medicine, mathematics, the letters and humanities, social and cognitive sciences, economics and the law.




ALLEA is the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities, representing more than 50 academies from over 40 countries in Europe. Since its foundation in 1994, ALLEA represents its Member Academies on the European stage and seeks to promote science as a global public good.




The European Council of Academies of Applied Sciences, Technologies and Engineering gathers 23 European Academies with a special focus on Innovation, energy and bioeconomy policy and has unique access to additional expertise from the business sector.




The Federation of European Academies of Medicine brings together 22 National Academies of Medicine and medical sections of National Academies of Sciences.



YASAS is a collaboration of fourteen Young Academies. It aims to strengthen SAPEA and the delivery of science advice in Europe by directly representing early-career academics.

The tasks

  • To provide targeted scientific evidence in a timely and transparent manner to inform the production of science advice by the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors of the European Commission while ensuring the highest scientific quality.
  • To support the Commission in identifying topics and challenges that may become relevant for policy through techniques such as horizon scanning and consultations, with support from the Academy Networks.
  • To strengthen the links between European science academies and ensure active participation of all academies associated in the networks that make up the Consortium.
  • To increase awareness of the significance of science advice for policy and ensure outreach to larger audiences, including in the Member States.
