Scientific evidence can be incredibly useful in policymaking, but too often, it is undervalued and can sometimes be difficult to access or understand.
We want to make it easier for policymakers and other decision-makers to access relevant scientific evidence and then integrate that evidence into their decision-making process.
The EPI Center synthesizes and distills scientific evidence on key societal issues in a way that makes it clear how that evidence can inform policy-making and decisions at the local, state, and federal levels.
The EPI Center will:
- Demonstrate the relevance of independent, non-partisan scientific evidence to public choices;
- Deliver clear, specific, and timely information to the people who need it most; and
- Ultimately, strengthen the policymaking process and bolstering public decisions about the most important issues of our day.
