Communicating trusted and actionable knowledge is more important than ever. It helps us address global challenges such as climate change, migration and public health within a context of complexity, uncertainties and rapid changes. At the same time there are signs of a growing public distrust in experts and government institutions, sometimes exacerbated by lack of clarity, openness and transparency. The need for greater mutual understanding between science and policy – as well as the wider public – is a key challenge for present-day democracies. This paper explores how stakeholders can together across boundaries and create safe interfaces between science, policy and society while securing social acceptability of evidence-informed policy-making.
