There is a growing demand for high quality inclusive public services as well as increased public scrutiny of government spending. Decision makers are facing the need to reach timely decisions in an increasingly volatile, uncertain and complex environment.
Quality evidence can effectively feed into policy and decision making processes, to contribute to the effectiveness of public interventions, achieving inclusive growth, and to help rebuild trust in public institutions and science.
Unconventional hydrocarbon extraction, especially the development of shale gas resources and its related impacts have been subject to significant debates at national, European and international level. Apart from political aspects a considerable amount of research has been performed or is underway in areas such as technology, environment, geology and social issues.
In today's political climate, when policy decisions are questioned and confidence in public institutions, expertise and evidence is under threat, it is vital to understand better the impact of knowledge and science on policymaking.
The EU Sustainable Energy Week is back for its 12th edition. It takes place in Brussels from 19 to 25 June 2017 to promote energy-saving and renewables and is complemented by a two-month series of events around Europe.
As part of the bilateral cooperation between the European Commission and China, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the Directorate-General for Environment (DG ENV) and the Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences (CRAES) are organising a workshop on Air Quality.
The “Food Fraud” congress, hosted by the BVL and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), will centre around the revision of the EU Control Regulation, which came into force in spring 2017. The new legal situation provides the framework for dealing in more depth with the implications of the new Regulation on the subject of food fraud. The event is addressed to all actors and stakeholders in this field.
