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.
We invite you to join us for a lively exchange on how to connect the worlds of science and policy.
Our seminar will highlight different ways in which researchers try to achieve policy impact.
Please find more information, the agenda, and the registration link on the COST dedicated event webpage.
Cancer is the primary cause of death for Europeans under 65. In the EU, cancer accounts for more deaths in people under 65 than any other disease. It hosts less than 10% of the world’s population, but yet has 23% of all cancer cases. On average, only 1 in 2 cancer patients survive and one in two of us will face cancer in our lifetimes. A successful fight against cancer rely upon identifying, aligning, planning and coordinating actions of these initiatives at the Scientific and Technical level. A task that needs to be done by a neutral, independent, yet competent entity – the JRC.
Health and education are essential pillars for all EU citizens. But the provision of services is under pressure in remote places. Therefore the place must be the core of our actions and policy solutions must be tailered to the characteristics of each place.
The launch event of the joint OECD-EC JRC report "Access and Cost of Education and Health Services: Preparing Regions for Demographic Change" will address the importance of understanding opportunities and obstacles in the provision of services across EU.
The Community of Practice in Financial Research (CoPFiR), set up by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, is pleased to announce the third edition of its Summer School on Sustainable Finance. The summer school will be held on July 6-8, 2021 as an online event.
Submission of papers is now open. Deadline is 23rd May. Find the procedure below.
The event is free of charge. Registration is mandatory.
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”.
The 38th edition of the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) takes place from 6-10th September 2021 and will be again an online event.
The international Conference Programme is structured in plenary, oral and visual presentations. These cover the entire range of PV research, technologies and applications with a special emphasis on the latest scientific, technological and market-related trends.

The WEFE Nexus Science Advances Conference is organised by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission, the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) and the Cyprus Institute to address the role of science as a driver of innovation and its interface with the policymaking process.
On 29 September 2021, in the framework of the pre-COP26 All4Climate - Italy 2021 initiative, this event aims to inform and discuss the science behind climate change with representatives from civil society, youth movements, young activists, and interested citizens.
