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.
Smart specialisation, technology transfer and digital economy – investments in research, innovation and human capital are key priority areas for boosting jobs and growth.
Opportunities and challenges of innovation and Europe's response to them are the topics of this conference, with a focus on South-East Europe, including the Western Balkans, and for constructive dialogue between institutions and businesses.
This session, included in the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) Congress 2018, will present research work emerging from the implementation of smart specialisation in the EU, its adaptation in Latin America as well as opportunities for cooperation and challenges in both sides.

Rapeseed is one of Europe’s major crops. Oil and animal feed is produced from it. And it is beautiful to look at when flowering.
Take part in our social media campaign by collecting pictures of rapeseed in bloom from around your area.
You will support our research.
This Tenth Summer School on Sensitivity Analysis, organised by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), aims to illustrate the motivations to conduct Sensitivity Analysis on simulation models
It offers accessible treatment of the techniques used in Global Sensitivity Analysis.
The programme will start from the first principles and will guide the students through the full range of recommended practices with exercises and application examples.
The scientific programme covers topics such as:
Digitisation, Automatisation and Decarbonisation are major trends that will drastically change the way we live, work and use mobility and transport in the future. Under the heading of “A digital Era for Transport”, the Transport Research Arena 2018 (TRA 2018) to be held on 16-19th April in Vienna, Austria, will explore, discuss and demonstrate these major paradigm shifts specifically directed at important areas of our life, such as transport, mobility, logistics and industrial production.
The 2018 JRC workshop on checks and management of agricultural land in the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) will be organised from Monday 28 May (14:00) to Wednesday 30 May (16:00) in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The workshop is co-hosted by the Lithuanian Agricultural Information and Rural Business Centre (VIC).
