The European Science Advisors Forum (ESAF) is an informal forum of the Chief Scientific Advisors of the EU Member States’ governments. It contributes to strengthening evidence-based policy-making and serves as a forum for sharing best practices in science-based policy advice. ESAF also promotes synergies between advisory structures and mechanisms at national and EU level.

ESAF is independent of the European Commission’s Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM). Members are nominated by their respective national governments, with 22 Member States currently participating. The German Federal Government has nominated Leopoldina President Jörg Hacker as Germany’s representative in ESAF.

ESAF members met for the first time in Copenhagen in June 2014, followed by meetings in July 2016 in Manchester and June 2017 in Amsterdam.
