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 STC gives advice on all nuclear-related matters, based on the Articles 4, 7 and 8 of the Treaty, dealing respectively with research, training and the Joint Research Centre. Its members are appointed by the Council following nomination by the Member States, but its members are named in their personal capacity and thus should not act as national representatives.
The ELINDER 'Decommissioning Summer School' is addressed to undergraduate students in the area of engineering, science and technology.
The course will give in 5 days an overview of the important issues related to nuclear decommissioning and waste management.
The course includes visits of the nuclear installations from JRC-Ispra and practical illustrative cases studies.
The participation is free of charge, interested students should complete the application form and will be selected on this basis.
The ten-day course will cover all aspects of satellite navigation, including
The main emphasis of the course will be the development of a group business project, building on an innovative idea to take in the planning of the product or service, its technical realisation and finally its marketing to customers.
In a world flooded with information making sense of and communicating knowledge, or evidence, is highly challenging.
Evidence-informed policymaking needs advocates and skilled practitioners.
The summer school aims to help researchers to have more impact and policymakers to use evidence for policy solutions.
The workshop will focus on the tools and approaches to inform the policymaking process through evidence.
The ELINDER specific course on "Decommissioning Planning and Cost Assessment" focusses on the know-how for preparing decommissioning activities: planning and cost assessment.
The course is organised by the Slovak University of Technology (STUBA).
The course will be supported with lectures from experienced Slovak companies as well as international organisations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The registration fee is € 1750 (VAT incl.).
INSPIRE will hold its annual Conference in Antwerp, Belgium, and will focus on the user's side with the goal of benefitting our society and the economy through collaboration.
Call for submissions are open, and organised in 3 different strands:
INSPIRE the Users: In this strand special attention goes to inspiring the usage and users of INSPIRE. Both public and private parties are invited to share their experiences with creating applications that benefit from INSPIRE.
