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 Joint Research Centre (JRC) participates in the 2018 European Week of Regions and Cities (EWRC).
At this four-day event, cities and regions showcase the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance.
The EWRC has grown into the key event on EU regional and cohesion policy.
The Commission launched in June 2017 the European Defence Fund to direct EU funds in support of collaborative defence research and capability development with the Member States. For the very first time, EU funds are being mobilised to support the whole life-cycle of defence product development.
Why do people migrate?
International migration will continue to be a significant topic for European and global policymaking.
Quantitative assessment presents factors that are the most important drivers of migration flows around the world.
This research could inform policies that help Europe to prepare effectively and to put international initiatives like the upcoming Global Compact for Migration into practice.
You can register for this event or watch it live on 27 September, from 12:30 CET.

The 2018 Smarter Conference will offer a comprehensive picture of the smart specialisation policy experience, including an evaluation of its early results, and will highlight recent developments both conceptually and empirically. Attention will be given to implementation challenges and ways to address them, as well as to methodologies for impact assessment. In addition, the conference will explore how smart specialisation engages with global value chains and production networks, and how firms, regions and cities can benefit from relationships across the borders.
This workshop will showcase the main developments of various non-EU countries in the Americas, Asia, Oceania and Africa in the implementation and/or adaptation of Smart Specialisation approach.
