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.
Workshop organised by the Economics of Agriculture Unit of the Joint Research Centre (JRC Seville) with the support of the Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) and the Ethiopian Economics Association (EEA).
JRC scientist Jean-Noël DRUON has been invited to be a guest speaker at the Event "Copernicus Marine Service: An EU asset for sustainable oceans", hosted by the European Parliament Intergroup on "Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development" and the MEPs Pavel Poc, Françoise Grossetête and Ricardo Serrão Santos at the European Parliament in Brussels on 26 September 2017.
The European Commission's Bioeconomy Knowledge Centre (BKC) will be launched at this event as the Commission's central knowledge hub on the bioeconomy.
Its purpose is to help to manage knowledge demand (helping users identifying the knowledge they really need), and knowledge supply (informing knowledge producers about users' needs; making knowledge available to (EU) policy makers and stakeholders).
Participants will explore how improved knowledge on bioeconomy can help policymakers better design related EU policies in the short, medium and long term.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Fisheries Department Regional Projects, the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre will run a Summer School in Quantitative Fisheries Stock Assessment from 10 – 22 July 2017, in the Institute for Marine and Coastal Environment (IAMC-CNR), Capo Granitola, Italy.
This workshop will gather policy and data experts in order to discuss an accurate representation of domestic support for economic modelling purpose, especially within the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) database. It is expected that participants will share expertise on new features, sources and methodologies. The objective of the meeting is to learn from existing experience on global domestic support database together with GTAP database constraints.
