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 Community of Practice in Financial Research (CoPFiR) is a community established by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre to strengthen the relationship between scientists and European policy makers.
CoPFir will promote research and collaboration on topics linked to Commission’s priorities, such as financial stability, with a well-functioning Banking Union, and capital markets, with the establishment of a Capital Markets Union.
The Community is currently composed of 19 European universities and associations of universities, and the initiative remains open to additional interested academic institutions.
The launch event of CopFir takes place on October 25th at the European Commission's Berlaymont building (Salle Jean Rey), from 9:00 to 15:10h.
The event brings together CoPFiR partners, policy makers from interested Directorates-General of the European Commission and representatives from other relevant non-academic institutions in order to highlight current policy priorities and discuss related research opportunities.
