Short description: This website is designed to promote new, timely and relevant information for environmental policy making. 
Long description: There is evidence that the results of research are not always fully exploited. It is thus important to improve the dissemination of research results so that they are both more usable for policy makers and help to communicate understanding of environmental issues to the general public. That is the reason why DG Environment has decided to establish this service in order to reinforce the links between science and policy. The target audience are policy makers as well as the wider public. This service provides scientific information in the field of the main themes of the Environmental Action Programme and relevant to DG Environment policy priorities in support of the knowledge based approach. The sources for this service are provided on one hand by the specialised staff of the contractor, on the other hand by EC officials and are scientific results of achieved or on-going EU funded projects and findings of other research initiatives implemented at international, national and regional levels,... Opinions expressed in the flash articles on this service do not necessarily reflect those of the European Commission
