Oficina C

We facilitate the access to scientific evidence on different topics of interest to the Congress and stimulate the dialogue between the scientific community and the Deputies. We contribute to the inclusion of scientific knowledge in the decision-making process.

Scientific evidence - from peer-review articles, interviews with researchers, scientists and experts, etc. - is analysed, summarised and put into context in the Reports C, following a standardised process (the Method C). The Reports C are available to all Deputies and the general public.
