Published on

Prof. Bart Koelmans was guest in a scientific podcast by SAPEA (Science Advice to Policy by European Academies).

Do policymakers and scientists have different understandings of "risk"? How can scientific uncertainty be communicated to policymakers? What is the role of disagrement among experts?

Bart Koelmans discusses these questions with Toby Wardman of SAPEA. We also discuss the strength of the evidence for harm from microplastics, the limits of the natural sciences, and how an English speaker should pronounce 'Wageningen'.
