Benchmark independent scientific analysis in major environmental & health crisis

The aim of this symposium is to bring together eminent figures from the world of science, health, law and social sciences to articulate the issue, clarify the challenges and explore the possible responses that will enable benchmark independent scientific analysis to contribute effectively to the swift and effective resolution of major environmental and health crisis. Interpretations of scientific analysis are promoted by many different actors such as politicians, NGOs, social networks or businesses via a multitude of vectors on the Internet. Some of these vectors may shift the subject of discussion according to particular interests, needs or a specific agenda. Subjective interpretation might override scientific facts. Is it therefore possible to initiate and produce a benchmark independent scientific analysis when a major environmental and human health crisis occurs? In the age of Internet, can such an analysis be carried out in the presence of a wide variety of actors whose global reach exposes them to media coverage that could well interfere with the making of the scientific analysis and distort its conclusions?
