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 last plenary project meeting of the CASCADE (CAtastrophic Shifts in drylands: how CAn we prevent ecosystem DEgradation?) project (the project period runs until end June 2017) will held in Matera (Italy) from 21-23 February, with a day centred around policy on 24 February 2017. Key policymakers from EU and other European organisations will participate in the policy forum.
