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.
Each year, the World Water Week is held in Stockholm. It addresses a particular theme to enable a deeper examination of a specific water-related topic.
While not all events during the week relate to the overall theme, the workshops driven by the Scientific Programme Committee and many seminars and side events do focus on various aspects of the theme.
The theme of the 2014 World Water Week is "Energy and Water"
At this year's event, the IES will participate in the EUWI (European Water Initiative) multi-stakeholder forum and a special session on Africa and Latin America.
