In this episode, we have Vladimír Šucha with us!

Vladimir is the chief brain at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre. He explains us that science and politics can have good chemistry, as much European policy is first observed, analysed and tested by his impressive team of scientists and experts.

And of course, we test his knowledge in a quiz on the history of science in Europe…
