Inaugural Lecture. The current epistemological crisis of Western democracies represent one of the most serious challenges that 21st century governments, policymakers and universities need to face. Together with scientists and policymakers, the trend towards post-truth, post-fact, or post-trust societies should prompt the humanities to reflect less upon abstract definitions of trust, let alone attitudes of trust and much more upon creating trustworthy institutions that are able to communicate evidence and analysis. In this lecture, I outline the present and future work of the Humanomics group on developing better practices for translating research into policymaking. The talk is divided in three sections. The first outlines the epistemic crisis. The second outlines current models of science advice. And the third outlines a research agenda for future science of science advice.
