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.
On the 23rd of November the JRC Karlsruhe will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the EURATOM treaty. The JRC will mark this milestone with a celebration dedicated to the Treaty’s achievements, particularly to the role and benefits of EURATOM supporting research, safety and safeguarding the peaceful use of nuclear energy in Europe. The opening session will include a welcoming of the Director General and representatives of the Baden-Württemberg region and the city of Karlsruhe.
To define the state of the art for quantitative measurement of food and nutrition security (F&NS) the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organise an international conference.
Researchers, academics, professionals and decision makers are invited to this interdisciplinary forum to discuss and present quantitative methods for integrated F&NS measurement.
The 2nd International Workshop on the European Atlas of Natural Radiation (IWEANR 2017) will be held in the town of Verbania, Italy, from Monday 6 November at 14:00 to Thursday 9 November at 16:00. The main aim of the workshop is to present the status and discuss progress of the European Atlas of Natural Radiation.
This school is intended to provide an overview to the measurement and analysis techniques associated with neutron induced reactions alongside the nuclear theory governing these reactions.
The training (06-08 Nov) will offer the lessons learnt from the JRC assessments on more than 100 well-known composite indicators and scoreboards.
The training is open to all (researchers, policy analysts) with an interest in scoreboards, composite indicators and multi-criteria analysis. No registration fees.
As the European Commission’s science and knowledge service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) regularly provides scientific and technical advice for the development and implementation of EU policy on climate action.
In this capacity, two JRC experts will advise the EU's delegation to COP23, the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
JRC will also organise side events on different thematic areas, which will be held at the EU Pavilion.
