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.
Next 14 December, the European Commission is launching the Competence Centre for Technology Transfer (CCTT). It represents the European Commission's primary platform for policy support and capacity building in technology transfer at the EU, national, regional and local level.
The core mission of the CCTT is to provide expert services to DGs, regional and local authorities and relevant stakeholders in three key areas:
The Wielkopolskie region is part of the pilot initiative on European coal regions in transition. The conference will explore the possibilities of a transition to a hydrogen-based energy system.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) has organised a workshop on perceptions and attitudes of the public opinion towards European policies. The workshop will bring together researchers and policy makers from all over Europe.
The meeting will take place in Seville with videoconference facilities in Ispra, Brussels and Madrid.
Water, energy, food security and health remain in the scientific and policy making spotlight in Africa.
The Evidence Informed Policy Making (EIPM) seminar will train participants to use evidence for policy making by focusing on challenges and interrelations of those fields.
Please apply online outlining your motivation and why you think this training will help you in your current job.
We are only at the beginning of a rapid period of transformation of our economy and society due to the convergence of many digital technologies.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is central to this change.
This event presents the JRC policy report on "Artificial Intelligence: A European perspective" as well as an anticipation of the AI Watch platform, which monitors the development, uptake, and socio-economic impact of AI in Europe.
The JRC is pleased to invite you to the following event on December 3rd:
How can EU policy benefit from new microdata? - Roundtable discussion and book presentation:
Data-Driven Policy Impact Evaluation: How Access to Microdata is Transforming Policy Design.
The SCK•CEN organises an ELINDER G1Training Course on "Decommissioning of Nuclear Installations".The main objective of the training course is to provide the participants with the basic requirements regarding the management of a decommissioning project and to share experience from ongoing decommissioning projects.
COP24 is the informal name for the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Our houses are fast becoming smart homes, with smart thermostats, domestic appliances and security systems activated by apps on our smartphones. But this is just the beginning. Smart homes are growing into smart communities and smart regions – even smart cities. In the future, we will live in an intelligent digital eco-system, where virtual power plants connect up sustainable energy systems, where electric cars behave as intelligent batteries, and where citizens produce energy as well as consuming it.
