Joint statement on scientific advice to European policy makers in the 
fight against the COVID-19 pandemic
Today the European Commission’s independent Group of Chief Scientific 
Advisors (GCSA), the European Group on Ethics in Science and New 
Technologies (EGE) and Peter Piot, special advisor to the President of 
the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, published a joint 
statement on scientific advice to European policy makers concerning the 
COVID-19 pandemic.

President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen said:

Scientific advice is part and parcel of our policy-making, also in times 
of an emergency like the Covid-19 pandemic when uncertainty and 
complexity abound. The statement helps us to learn from experience in 
real time. As Europe gradually emerges from shutdown, scientific advice 
will continue to inform our approach to recovery and the EU’s 
preparedness for possible future crises.
