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 25th anniversary of the MARS Crop Monitoring and Yield Forecasting Bulletins conference is an occasion to highlight the broader role of agricultural monitoring systems, how monitoring underpins production forecasts, and how they contribute to market transparency from a regional to global context.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission's science and knowledge service, is playing an important role in providing scientific and technological support for the European Union enlargement and integration process by giving scientific and technical support to countries on the road towards EU membership, New Member States and Associated Countries to the Research Framework Programmes.
This course provides participants with the theoretical basis for the estimation of measurement uncertainty and establishment of traceability. Measurement uncertainty and traceability are essential for the evaluation of measurement results.
Reference materials are key tools for achieving traceability of measurements, proving the accuracy of methods and demonstrating the proficiency of laboratories. This knowledge is applied to the proper selection and use of reference materials.
In the framework of their ongoing cooperation, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei are co-organising the XXth Edoardo Amaldi Conference - International Cooperation for Enhancing Nuclear Safety, Security, Safeguards and Non-Proliferation - 60 Years IAEA Atoms for Peace and Development and Euratom Treaty.
The The Academy of Business in Society (ABIS) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) are pleased to invite you to join the webinar on the Scenario Exploration System – SES.
This foresight simulation tool provides a platform that engages participants in future-oriented systemic thinking.
It makes participants take action to reach their long-term objectives in contrasting scenario-related contexts while interacting with other stakeholders.
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.
The Joint Research Centre intends to present its nuclear decommissioning activities and the new interim storage facility for radiological waste at its Ispra site (Italy). This initiative aims at informing local communities and stakeholders about the planned and on-going activities on nuclear decommissioning, making them more transparent and accessible to the public at large while being in compliance with the relevant Italian legislation in the nuclear field and the European Commission's transparency policy.
This webinar, organised by the Joint Research Centre, will give participants the opportunity to follow the conversation with some of the authors of a new book on how complex systems and social practice theories reframe the issue of energy sustainability in the time of renewables.
