In March 2021, the Spanish Congress of Deputies and the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) have signed a collaboration agreement for the development of the Science and Technology Office of the Congress of Deputies.
The main objective of the Science and Technology Office of the Congress of Deputies is to provide the Congress of Deputies with scientific evidence on certain topics of interest, in order to contribute to decision-making informed by the available scientific and technological knowledge.
This scientific evidence will be collected through standardised processes and in collaboration with the Spanish and international research community, will be provided in a transparent manner, and will be open to the public.
An S&T advice committee including the main public scientific and technological institutions in Spain will contribute to the Office, boosting the science advice ecosystem in Spain.
The Office will have a multidisciplinary team of legal advisers, scientific researchers and communication experts.
Spain is a member of EPTA since November 2021.
