Last year we were invited to Belgium to work with the European Commission on their Enlightenment 2.0 project.

Sixty experts from across the globe working in the fields of behavioural and social sciences as well as the humanities, contributed to the research that underpins the EU Joint Research Commission report that calls upon evidence-informed policymaking not to be taken for granted.

Work from the project on how thinking skills are challenged by today's information environment and make us vulnerable to disinformation has now been published and can be downloaded here.
