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.
Although science and art may not seem the most obvious of companions, over the past number of decades there has been an increase in the number of collaborations internationally.
Following on from the success of the RESONANCES event in 2015, the JRC is organising a SciArt Summer School at its site in Ispra. The summer school will bring together policy-makers, museum curators working on the border between art and science, scientists and artists active in the field in a series of round table discussions, workshops and meetings.
Together with the Directorates-General for Research and Innovation and Communications Networks, Content and Technology, the summer school gives artists, scientists and policy-makers the chance to come together and exchange ideas and experiences under the theme of 'fairness'.
