We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2018 will take place in Vienna, Austria, from 8-13 April 2018.
The EGU 2018 General Assembly, the largest geosciences meeting in Europe, brings together thousands of geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. It provides an opportunity for journalists and science writers to talk to researchers, learn about new developments and find out about the latest discoveries in a variety of areas, such as climate, space and planetary science missions, natural disasters, and seafloor exploration. After the 2017 record-breaking meeting, with over 14,000 participants and around 17,400 scientific presentations, we anticipate another large conference with a packed programme again in 2018.
On Wednesday, 11 April, JRC scientists Raphaël d'Andrimont, Guido Lemoine, and Marijn van der Velde will present Crop monitoring with Sentinels and crowd-sourced street level imagery as part the session Citizen Science for Earth Systems in the Era of Big Data.
