Location ICES HQ, Copenhagen, Denmark
Dates: 9-11 October 2018

​​​​​​​​​A key criterion for ICES advice is that it is based on the best available science and data. In spite of that, ICES has conducted rather little systematic evaluation of the processes that support the uptake and translation of science into advice and has not provided guidance to our wider network of scientists and advisers on the working practices, project funding mechnisms and other considerations that accelerate uptake and translation. 

The objective of this workshop is to fill this gap by inviting scientists and advisers with a national or international track record in turning science into advice to review the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches and to identify and describe processes, practices and funding mechanisms that have supported uptake. 

All workshop participants will be invited to prepare at least one case-study in advance of the workshop: to provide a description of the uptake and translation of science into advice in national or international advice. Participants should have sufficient familiarity with their case-study to respond to detailed questions on timing, resourcing and process to other Workshop attendees. Case-studies can address any advisory topic within the ICES domain.

Outcomes of the workshop will be criteria to assess the factors that influence that uptake and translation of science into national or international advice and a review of the processes, practices and funding mechanisms that have effectively supported the translation of science into advice. Outcomes will be used to strengthen links between science and advisory processes in ICES and to guide the development of those scientific projects aiming to develop methods and tools to support advice.
