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.
To better guide policy decision-making on mitigating the risk of climate change, novel and interdisciplinary approaches are required, which involve a dialogue between scientists from different communities (e.g., climate and impact modelling) and stakeholders to share data and knowledge. Credible and meaningful metrics need to be developed that can help quantifying risks related to physical climate change.
Atelier organisé par l'Unité Economie de l'Agriculture du Centre Commun de Recherche (Séville), avec le soutien de l'Initiative Prospective Agricole et Rurale (IPAR), African Growth and Development Policy Modeling Consortium (AGRODEP), Wageningen Economic Research et Wageningen Environmental Research.

The European Space Agency (ESA) in cooperation with the Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO) is organising an event dedicated to the scientific and operational exploitation of Proba-V mission. The event, entitled “Proba-V Symposium”, will be hosted in Ghent (Belgium), at the Mariott Hotel, from 26 to 28 January 2016.
At todays' External Cooperation Info Point, IES scientist Estefania Custodio will give a presentation entitled A new global indicator - Bridging gender, food security and nutrition, in which she will speak about the new global indicator "Minimum Dietary Diversity for Women," designed to track women’s food and nutrition security, especially in resource-poor areas.
The general public, the development community and the staff of the European institutions are welcome to attend, and interaction and exchange are key objectives of these sessions
The IPC Food Security Working Group will work with the IPC Nutrition Working Group (IPC NWG) to capture cross-cutting lessons learned to prepare and develop a consolidated, articulated, and harmonized Integrated Food and Nutrition Security Phase Classification System that consists of the three IPC Classification scales (IPC Acute Food Insecurity, IPC Acute Malnutrition, and IPC Chronic Food Insecurity).
