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 great recession that followed the financial crisis increased the need to find innovative ways to re-launch growth and make it in socially sustainable manner. Many initiatives have been launched, but there is limited evidence of the results obtained, especially if we look at the comprehensive social and economic impact achieved.
On the 23rd of November the JRC Karlsruhe will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the EURATOM treaty. The JRC will mark this milestone with a celebration dedicated to the Treaty’s achievements, particularly to the role and benefits of EURATOM supporting research, safety and safeguarding the peaceful use of nuclear energy in Europe. The opening session will include a welcoming of the Director General and representatives of the Baden-Württemberg region and the city of Karlsruhe.
The European Commission Joint Research Center (JRC), the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) and the FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy of the University of Cyprus invite you to their Workshop on Smart Grids Research and Innovation priorities.
The scope of the course is
What is the stability region of a DSGE model? Which structural parameters mainly drive the unique saddle-path solution of DSGE models?
To define the state of the art for quantitative measurement of food and nutrition security (F&NS) the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organise an international conference.
Researchers, academics, professionals and decision makers are invited to this interdisciplinary forum to discuss and present quantitative methods for integrated F&NS measurement.
The 2nd International Workshop on the European Atlas of Natural Radiation (IWEANR 2017) will be held in the town of Verbania, Italy, from Monday 6 November at 14:00 to Thursday 9 November at 16:00. The main aim of the workshop is to present the status and discuss progress of the European Atlas of Natural Radiation.
This school is intended to provide an overview to the measurement and analysis techniques associated with neutron induced reactions alongside the nuclear theory governing these reactions.
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.
