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 Romanian Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and together with the European Commission's Joint Research Centre are organising an information exchange event focused on three main topics: nanotechnology, the EU strategy for the Danube region (covering transport, energy, environment, security and socio-economic issues), the development of a low carbon society (including nuclear energy).
This event is taking place on 16 June 2011 in Bucharest in the Palace of Parliament and will count on the participation of the Romanian Minister for Education, Research, Youth and Sports, Daniel Funeriu and the President of the Romanian Academy, Ionel Haiduc.
In addition to this event, the JRC also organises on June 15 a seminar for young researchers at the University Central Library, in which job and collaboration opportunities with the JRC will be described.
