In the framework of activities of the Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography, the JRC is organising a one-day workshop on Migration Data on Thursday 10 November at JRC Ispra.

The workshop will bring together relevant Commission services and EU agencies that play a key role in collecting and analysing migration data, including FRONTEX, EASO, FRA and eu-LISA.

The GENTLE (Graduate and Executive Nuclear Training and Lifelong Education) project brings together leading European academic and research institutions with the goal to set up an executive learning programme, strongly supported by industry stakeholders. In this 6 week course you will learn the physics behind nuclear science, how to gain energy from nuclear fission, how nuclear reactors operate safely, and the life cycle of nuclear fuel: from mining to disposal. In the last part of the course, we will focus on what matters most in the public debate: the economic and social impact of nuclear energy but also the future of energy systems.
