Research in Support of Policies
JRC Information Day in Slovenia
Ljubljana 26 May 2008
The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Slovenian Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology would like to thank participants and speakers for their contribution to this successful event.
The main objective of the event was to underline the role of research in support to the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of policies at EU, national and regional level in areas such as climate change, energy, food, agriculture, GMO's, etc. All these areas are of vital importance for the quality of life and safety of citizens.
The event presented examples of the customer-driven scientific and technical support that the JRC provides to the European Union policies, as well as examples of the Slovenian research organisations supporting national policies. Recent achievements and progress in collaboration between the JRC and Slovenian partners have also been represented.
The goal was to encourage dialogue, identify potential partnerships and pave the way for further scientific and technical collaboration. The possibilities for participation of Slovenian scientists in the JRC advanced training courses, joint research projects, as well as future job opportunities have also been presented.
