The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) are organising a joint expert workshop
Oct 24 2016

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.

As part of the Google Earth Outreach programme, this hands-on workshop provides an insight into the state-of-the-art Google mapping platforms (incl. Google Earth Engine, Earth Engine), with a  focus on their application by non-profit organisations.
IES scientists M. Clerici and D. Simonetti have been invited to attend the workshop to represent the JRC, which has long been involved as a beta-tester of the Google platforms (MoU between JRC and Google).

At the GEO IV conference and exhibition, the JRC is presenting its Earth observation related activities, and in particular those regarded as early achievements in the frame of the GEOSS process: its work as the technical and scientific coordinator of INSPIRE, aiming to provide reliable geo-data for assessing environmental conditions across the whole of Europe, as well as its activities in the frame of the Africa Observatory sustainable development. These concern in particular the monitoring of environmental indicators for natural resource management, of forest resources and of biodiversity.
