The latest edition of the JRC Newsletter has been published and can be downloaded here.
This issue features an editorial by Morten Østergaard, Danish Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education. The cover story provides an insight into the importance of standards.
Among the news we have stories on the JRC’s analysis of a recent bank crisis management proposal, facilitating fisheries control in Europe through Bluefin habitats map and the inauguration of a brand new nuclear safeguards research laboratory in the Karlsruhe site.
This edition of the newsletter also includes briefs on a high throughput screening technique used to accelerate validation of alternative testing methods, a report that has forecasted a shortage of nuclear experts by 2020 and a novel concept for a surveillance and alarm system to be used in public transport systems.
