The Juno Evidence Alliance is a pioneering global platform at the forefront of transforming agriculture, food systems, and climate adaptation through evidence-based policy. Our mission is to fill the critical gap in the coordination and standardization of evidence-informed decision-making processes.
By harnessing the power of artificial intelligence and established scientific research methods, we expedite the synthesis of diverse data sources, delivering scientific and technical conclusions for governments, funders, and policymakers worldwide.
We bring together researchers, policy makers, publishers, computer and data scientists, and evidence advocates from across fields and disciplines to break down traditional boundaries between research production and use.
Juno is co-founded by CABI, University of Notre Dame, and Havos.Ai, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) in the United Kingdom.
