On 27 April 2015 the essay collection Future Directions for Scientific Advice in Europe (eds. James Wilsdon and Robert Doubleday) was presented in Brussels. The joint publication was a project by: University of Cambridge’s Centre for Science and Policy; Science Policy Research Unity (SPRU) at the University of Sussex; the European Commission; and Stiftung Mercator. It is also a linked activity of the new International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA).

The publication was launched at a high-level summit on scientific advice. Finland was represented at the summit by Chancellor emeritus Kari Raivio, who is also one of the writers of the essay collection. Other writers include: Anne Glover, Ulrike Felt, Robert Madelin, Andy Stirling, Vladimír Šucha and Jos van der Meer.
