They want to contribute to the strengthening of scientific and technological evidence assessment as a fundamental – but not the only – aspect of parliamentary work in Spain.
Oficina C is currently working of the following topics of priority to the Congress of Deputies:
- Green hydrogen as a fuel
- Artificial intelligence and health
- Advances in cancer treatments
