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 second scientific seminar of the Knowledge Centre for Disaster Risk Management: Science for Policy and Operations will take place in Rome, Italy, on 9-10 March 2017 and will gather around hundred inter-disciplinary experts on disaster management, early detection, forecasting, warning and risk assessment of natural and man-made disasters, in both the fields of civil protection and humanitarian aid.
The target audience includes scientists, practitioners and policy-makers at national, regional and international levels, as well as first responders, and private sector representatives.
