A 1-day opportunity for EU policy-makers and civil society change-makers

Better integrating cognitive diversity can help improve the effectiveness and legitimacy of public administration. This has been proven to be very effective for instance for public health policies for which crowdsourcing methods have been used extensively during the Covid pandemic.
