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 JRC-managed Smart Specialisation Platform is organising a Peer eXchange and Learning (PXL) workshop on Entrepreneurial Discovery Process (EDP) aimed at regional and national authorities.
The PXL exercise will focus on the operationalisation of the EDP process during the implementation of research and innovation strategies for smart specialisation (RIS3).
This 2 day workshop discusses the current state-of-the-art of thermal propagation testing.
Leading experts will also brain-storm on the potential impact of preventing thermal propagation on the safety testing landscape.
DG JRC is organising a workshop with the European Committee of Regions, three Joint Undertakings (JUs) -Cleansky JU, FCH JU and BBI JU- and with a number of regional and national ESIF managing authorities to promote collaboration in support of RIS3 implementation.
Objectives of the event are:
The impact of machine intelligence on human behaviour is the topic of this 2 day kickoff workshop.
The workshop also to bring together a high-level group of experts from across all sectors, to hear from the latest thinking, research, and industrial developments.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) will organise a workshop for the participants in the 2017 EC Proficiency Test as well as basic and advanced courses on gamma-ray spectrometry.
The JRC co-organises the workshop Fiscal Policy and Microsimulation that will take place on 25 January 2018 in Valencia (Spain).
The workshop will combine relevant keynote speakers with contributed papers and will run in parallel to the 25th Meeting on Public Economics, a 2-day general-purpose conference focused on Public Economics (in Spanish).
The Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy is organising a High Level Event to showcase the results achieved so far and to discuss on the most effective ways to keep assisting regions specialised in the energy domain. Particular focus will be given to the interregional cooperation dynamics in the domains of bioenergy, smart grids, sustainable buildings, marine renewables and solar.

The 2018 edition of the Macro-Regional Innovation Week will take place in Ispra (IT) from 24 to 26 January 2018, with the focus on Science and Technology knowledge for policy support and on collaboration with the JRC.
The Macro-Regional Innovation Week will promote the opening of the JRC's research infrastructures and laboratories and showcase JRC's technical and scientific competences, in particular in the field of environment, energy, transport and biotechnologies.
Which are the principles underpinning RIS3 and RIS3 monitoring? What are the core-indicators to monitor the sound implementation of research and innovation Smart specialisation strategies (RIS3)? Where to find the key data-sources needed to monitor them?
