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 Commission's External Relations DG (RELEX) is organising on 12-13 November in Brussels the Security Conference "From early warning to early action - developing the EU's response to crisis and longer-term threats". The conference comprises several round tables focusing on "crisis response" and "Preparedness and Capacity". JRC's Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen is contributing to several sessions as presenter and moderator as well as hosting a stand to show activities underway at the JRC in support of DG RELEX.
IPSC provides scientific and technical support to EU external relations and security related policies, particularly in the areas of global security & stability, border management, fight against terrorism and crime, as well as in nuclear and transport security. For this purpose, IPSC applies its expertise and competencies in nuclear safeguards/non-proliferation, open source and geo-spatial intelligence and analysis, information technologies as well as systems engineering and analysis.
