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.

How can we build a fair world? Science and art (SciArt) meet to provoke conversation and inspire answers to this question at the second Resonances exhibition about Fair/Fear.
Resonances II is a mix of debates, performances, conferences and an exhibition organised by the European Commission's science and knowledge service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci.
Visitors will have the possibility to engage and participate; they can contribute with their insights, concerns and expectations, interact with the installations and volunteer in a randomized collection of data for further studies on fairness.
The exhibition will show science elaborated by well-known artists from all over Europe such as Frederik de Wilde, Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand, AnneMarie Maes, Fabio Lattanzi Antinori and emerging ones such as Lorenzo Montanini, Honey & Bunny (Martin Haeblesreiter e Sonja Stummerer), Markus Zohner and Alan Alpenfelt, Fabio Cian, Davy Vanham & Luc Feyen, Anaïs Tondeur, Mario Costanzi, Matteo Pizzolante, Kim De Ruysscher.
Their installations are the result of the 2016 JRC SciArt Summer School, where scientists, policymakers and artists came together to find common ground and investigate common concerns on economy, food, disasters, air pollution, climate change, marine environment, olive groves, animal testing, water consumption, migration, and post humanity.
The exhibition will be open to the public from 22 September to 22 October at the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci, Via S. Vittore, 21 in Milan, Italy.
A press conference is foreseen on 21st September, from 11.00.
