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 Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography (KCMD) and the IOM's Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) will launch the Big Data for Migration Alliance (BD4M) to advance discussions on how to harness the potential of big data sources for the analysis of migration and its relevance for policymaking, while ensuring the ethical use of data and the protection of individuals’ privacy.
As conveners of BD4M, the KCMD and IOM’s GMDAC welcome the participation of representatives from international organizations and non-governmental organizations, members of national statistical offices, private sector representatives, researchers and data scientists interested in contributing, in various capacities, to realizing the potential of big data to complement traditional data sources on migration.
If you are interested in attending the event, contact Michele Vespe (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Marzia Rango (MRango@iom.int).
