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 COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has increased the visibility of the social economy’s contribution to socio-economic development and social cohesion.
The pandemic demonstrates that it is an essential part of Europe’s safety net in times of crisis, thanks to its leadership in providing essential goods and services to the most deprived.
Therefore social economy could play an important role in the recovery phase.The #SES2020 will look at the social economy as a driver of change.
Les Objectif du cours ELINDER G3
• Décrire le processus général du démantèlement et les principaux aspects de la réglementation.
• Identifier les différentes techniques, procédés et méthodologies mis en œuvre.
• Se situer dans les exigences et les contraintes en matière de sûreté, sécurité, environnement et radioprotection.
On 23-24 November the Strategic Energy Technology Plan 2020 conference takes place virtually with the theme “Making the SET Plan fit for the EU Green Recovery”.
Co-organised with the German Presidency of the Council of the EU, the event will discuss the contribution of the SET Plan to the more ambitious energy and climate targets for 2030 and 2050 in the context of the recovery.
Earthquakes threaten a large percentage of homes and public buildings across the EU. At the same time, inefficient energy consumption from these outdated buildings is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. A pilot project puts forward a holistic approach to improve simultaneously the seismic safety and energy efficiency of the European building stock.
Corrado Macchiarelli, Sebastian Diessner, Mara Monti and Claudia Wiesner present their new book exploring the ECB’s monetary policy-making over the past decade.
The book scrutinises the different dimensions of the EU's economic governance, the implications of the ECB's actions since the financial crisis, and how these relate to the rise of anti-establishment politics in Europe.
As such, this book will be relevant not only to understand the political implications of the past crisis but also, and foremost, in understanding "what is next".
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the JRC had to cancel the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS) workshop planned in Stuttgart and postpone the 26th MARS Conference (scheduled to be held in Barcelona) until conditions improve.
Nevertheless, JRC activities on IACS did not stop during this period. In collaboration with Member States who adopted checks by monitoring (CbM) and with DG AGRI, we developed several solutions, methodologies and tools. It is now time to share these findings among our IACS community members.
The Urban Development Network (UDN) organises in November a series of six online webinars based on the findings of the Handbook of Sustainable Urban Development Strategies published by the Joint Research Centre in collaboration with the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy
The JRC's Energy Storage Unit is organising a one-day online workshop on the decarbonisation of heavy goods vehicle transport.
If our society is to undergo full decarbonisation by 2050 then this must also be achieved by the transport sector. In this regard, road freight is deemed to be particularly difficult. Technologies that could lead to full decarbonisation on the road are: Hydrogen fuel cells, Batteries and Caternary/Pantograph.
