Nine NGOs, including Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, have, in a letter, urged the European Commission to dissolve the post of Chief Scientific Advisor to the commission president, created in 2011. They said the job "concentrates too much influence in one person", helping "vested interests" to control European policy-making.
