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.
Big Data from Space refers to the massive spatio-temporal Earth and Space observation data collected by space-borne and ground-based sensors. This emerging domain is currently facing sharp increase - fortunately paralleled by tremendous amount of new developments and breakthroughs software developments, such as multi-temporal data analysis, data management and information extraction technologies.
The 2017 JRC workshop on control and management of agricultural land in IACS (Integrated Agricultural Control System) will be organised from Monday 29 May (14:00) to Wednesday 31 May (16:00) in Ghent, Belgium.
The workshop is co-hosted by the Agriculture and Fisheries Department of Belgium-Flanders.
The biennial ICRM conference gathers both leading experts and beginners and is providing an opportunity for exchange of information on the development of techniques and new applications of radionuclide metrology, and to encourage international cooperation in this field.
The 20th Latin American Congress of Soil Science, be organised by the Latin American Soil Science Society (SLCS) and the Peruvian Soil Science Society (SPCS), will be held in Cuzco, Peru, from 9-15 November 2014. The Congress aims to be a platform for scientific and cultural exchanges between researchers, teachers, students, professionals and anyone interested in the conservation of soil and water in Latin America.

The main purpose of this conference is to offer an opportunity for Member States Administrations, EU officials, Image Providers and contractors to meet and discuss particular problems or innovations concerning the management of the Common Agriculture Policy.
The World Congress of Soil Science (WCSS) has been held on a quadrennial basis since 1927 as a scientific meeting in the area of soil science. the 20th WCSS is expected to gather over 2 500 participants, from science and industry, from more than 100 countries around the world. A wide range of scientific programs and stimulating social activities will be organised under the theme, “Soils Embrace Life and Universe”. The JRC plans to have a stand at the congress.
The conference covers all technical topics linked to the administration and control of the CAP direct aids such as controls with Remote Sensing (CwRS), Land Parcel Identification Systems (LPIS) management and quality assessment, permanent Ecological Focus Area (EFA) creation and management and more.
