CATALONIA - THE ADVISORY BOARD OF THE PARLIAMENT OF CATALONIA FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (CAPCIT)
Work Procedures and Methods
TheParliament of Catalonia has developed an awareness of the fact that in the age we live in, parliaments are not familiar with what is the most suitable way to provide support to scientific and technical innovations, and oftentimes they do not realise all the implications posed by the current scientific and technical revolution.
In this sense, CAPCIT has the following goals:
- Contributing to the improvement of the scientific and technical knowledge of the Parliament and disseminating it among Catalan society.
- Channelling participation from the main scientific and technical institutions when it comes to shaping the will of the Parliament in these spheres.
- Cooperating with institutions, bodies, professional associations, universities and other organisations and institutes that operate in the fields of science and technology as well as coordinating with them.
- Promoting shared responsibility with regard to public science and technology policies.
The principle for all actions undertaken by CAPCIT is founded on fostering diversity in opinion and scientific and technical alternatives in order to ensure the consultancy provided is neutral, objective and independent.
