International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA)

INGSA is a collaborative platform for policy exchange, capacity building and research across diverse global science advisory organisations and national systems. Through workshops, conferences and a growing catalogue of tools and guidance, the network aims to enhance the global science-policy interface to improve the potential for evidence-informed policy formation at sub-national, national and transnational levels.

INGSA has a role in bringing together international science advisors addressing global challenges and in particular emergencies. For example, in order to improve the response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, INGSA created a dedicated hub of information related to the science advice and diplomacy issues raised by the pandemic.
