The JRC-IRMM is please to meet you in the exhibition area at the EUROANALYSIS 2015.
This workshop is part of the programme of the 99th Universal Exposition taking place in Milan (Italy) on the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life". The workshop aims to contribute to share knowledge, experiences and approaches on the economic, institutional, and social drivers of current and future global food and nutrition security. One of the main goals is to discuss the role and contribution of smallholder farmers in developing countries. Smallholder farmers as the main rural actors are frequently the most food insecure because of an array of challenges.
The summer school targets professionals with experience in intellectual property management and technology transfer.
This year, the course is organised around several technical sessions and will feature a visit to JRC laboratories that are involved in decommissioning and nuclear and radioactive waste management. The school uses a combination of lectures, working sessions, tabletop exercises, practical field exercises, case studies and group deliberations as part of the exercises to meet its objectives.
This event is co-organised by the JRC, the European Parliament Committe on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE), and Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA).
The JRC is co-organising a two-day workshop on the Water-Food-Energy-Ecosystems Security Nexus, to be held in the CNR Research Area MI1 (18 September 2015) and the EU Pavillion on the EXPO site (19 September 2015).
This workshop will take insights from behavioural economics to discuss how public health systems could be designed to work cost efficient to the benefit of the citizens.
JRC-IPTS is active in developing data analytics applications for evidence-based policy advice, with a focus on the ICT industry in Europe. Work performed in this field includes tools and methods used to identify EU poles of excellence in ICTs and still ongoing trials with knowledge discovery, pattern recognition, semantic analysis and visualisation techniques. It is addressing diverse aspects such as innovation networks, technology co-evolution or the profiling of ICT techno-economic segments.
The JRC is organising this workshop under the Microbial Community-based sequencing analysis linked to anthropogenic pressures (MicroCokit), within the framework of the FP7 Marie Curie Action: "Industry Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP)" project.
The first JRC annual lecture will be opened by European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics, and delivered by Alan Belward, head of the JRC's land resource management unit, with Claudia Olazabal, head of DG Environment's agriculture, forests and soil unit as discussant.
