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 training will include a workshop where academics and JRC researchers will share their knowledge on composite indicators.
The 12th edition of this European recruitment and student fair is going to be held in Strasbourg on 26 - 27 November 2010. The event is a unique plateform for exchange and meetings between universities, research institutes, actors of the German-French collaboration on the one side and students as well as high-school graduates on the other side with 155 exhibitors and 6.600 visitors in 2009.
From 25 to 30 May 2008, the JRC Institute of Energy (IE) is hosting the 13th International Symposium on Reactor Dosimetry. About 110 participants from all over the world, from Korea and Japan to Argentina and the United States and of course many participants from Europe exchange recent information on the measuring and calculation of neutron and photon exposure in nuclear reactors. Neutrons and photons have an important influence on the degradation of reactor construction materials and therefore the life time of a nuclear power plant. Also an inventory is being made on the approach of neutron dosimetry in new generation power plants.
The training (26-28 September 2016) will offer the lessons learnt from the JRC assessments on more than 100 well-known composite indicators and scoreboards.
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.
The European Career Fair (ECF) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is recruiting event that connects employers from Europe with talented graduates, researchers and other job seekers that live in the US. Through networking and job interviews, the fair facilitates contacts between European employers and possible candidates who are interested in living and working in Europe.
The 17th European Biomass Conference & Exhibition - From Research to Industry and Markets - main reference for the world's leading Biomass experts - will take place in Hamburg, Germany. More than 1,500 participants from more than 70 countries are expected to attend and learn about the latest breakthroughs in the field. The Exhibition, taking place in parallel with the Conference, will feature the foremost companies and state-of-the-art products in the Biomass industry.
The 17th International Symposium on Landscape Ecology, organised by the Institute of Landscape Ecology, Slovak Ecological Society and Constantine the Philosopher University, will be held in Nitra, Slovakia, from 27-29 May 2015.
This symposium aims to explore the current concepts and trends in landscape ecology and the links to other landscape-related issues.
JRC scientist Peter Vogt will give an oral presentation on latest JRC-research on landscape fragmentation assessment schemes.
