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.
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:
In the context of the EUSEW 2018 Policy Conference, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre organises the workshop "Energy storytelling: why stories matter to scientists and policy-makers in energy policy".
The objective of the conference is to show how regional partnerships involving universities and other higher education institutions (HEIs) can drive Smart Specialisation Strategies. It brings together the outcomes of two related projects: Higher Education for Smart Specialisation (HESS), managed by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre in cooperation with DG Education and Culture, and Thinking Smart, an Erasmus+ funded consortium of European HEIs.
Exploring new challenges of policymaking and future-oriented frames and methods to respond to them is the aim of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) FTA2018 conference - Future in the making.
FTA 2018 is a two day event taking place at The Square Business Center in Brussels.
