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 2018 edition of the Macro-Regional Innovation Week will take place in Ispra (IT) from 24 to 26 January 2018, with the focus on Science and Technology knowledge for policy support and on collaboration with the JRC.
The Macro-Regional Innovation Week will promote the opening of the JRC's research infrastructures and laboratories and showcase JRC's technical and scientific competences, in particular in the field of environment, energy, transport and biotechnologies.
The event will be the occasion to present key results of JRC's Scientific Support activities to the European Union Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) that may be relevant to other macro-regions.
During the three-days event, participants will also have the opportunity to visit the main site of the JRC in Ispra.
The call for participation is now closed.
JRC's Macro-Regional Innovation Week intends to promote the exchange of best practices and knowledge among local and international policy and decision makers, academics, financial institutions and various actors of innovation and technology transfer practitioners among Europe's macro-regions including Western Balkans and East-European neighbouring countries.
