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.
JRC's Circular Economy and Industrial Leadership Unit is organising an online brainstorming seminar for a new project: bounCE4ward.
The COVID -19 crisis exposed the EU’s vulnerability to sudden shocks in the global supply chain. This new Centre for Advanced Studies' initiative aims to investigate to what extent the Circular Economy could provide resilience and strategic autonomy for priority supply chains, how circular the EU economy currently is for various sectors, and what actions are most urgently needed.
Organ-on-Chip (OoC) or Micro Physiological Systems (MPS) are innovative devices that emulate human/animal biology and can reproduce one or more aspects of an organ’s functionality. Among other benefits, they can lead to better testing of drugs and adapted treatments to genetic diversity, ethnicity, sex and age; reduce the cost of clinical trials and replace animal testing for cosmetic products, banned in Europe since 2013.
Join us for the 2021 edition of the JRC Virtual Summer School on Non-animal Approaches in Science organised by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) and its EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM).
Important: deadline for applications has been now extended to 17 January!
Due to the pandemic crisis, the Summer School will be held online.
Postponed to 19-30 July 2021.
The Summer School aims to provide the attendees with a comprehensive overview on satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution.
Many lab work will be carried out to get attendees really “hands-on”.
