Commission and academia to join forces against poverty

Brussels has recently witnessed the launch of the European Commission's new Scientific Advisory Board for EU development policy. The Board, which is expected to provide cutting edge research, is made up of eight international academics with expertise in development issues. These experts will meet twice a year to discuss key topics of development policy.
European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs expressed: "I want to ensure that EU development policies are based on the best scientific evidence available to achieve the best possible results of our aid [...] The Board will help us to link research and concrete policy formulation and implementation in a much more effective way. I want to thank the members of the Board for their time and voluntary contribution to this ambitious project."
