Anne Glover named as first EU chief science adviser

The European Commission has chosen Scottish biochemist Anne Glover as the first EU chief scientific adviser. Glover has been serving as chief scientific adviser for Scotland since August 2006, but is expected to leave her current post on 21 December. As CSA, Glover will provide scientific advice to Commission president José Manuel Barroso, communicate Commission decisions to the public, and also work with advisory groups and national advisers to keep the Commission posted on their concerns. The appointment comes more than two years after Barroso pledged to create the post, in September 2009.
