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.
Together with the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), the JRC is organising a series of panel discussions in the framework of the Section for Transport Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN Section).
The discussions include:
The Energy, Water and Climate Change in the Mediterranean (EWACC) -Building Bridges between Europe, the Middle East and North Africa Conference, will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus, from 15-17 June 2015.
The EWACC-Building Bridges initiative, organised by the Cyprus Institute, aims to foster sustainable development and enable new partnerships in the Euro-Mediterranean region. The Conference will bring together a broad range of expertise, including distinguished scientists from various research fields, the private sector, policy makers, funding agencies and high-level officials.
In recent years, the realization that tertiary education is part and parcel of a country’s competitive advantage, together with the impetus given by the global rankings, have provoked a radical change in the way governments consider the role and importance of universities. Preliminary results of this work show clearly that the most successful institutions are those that have managed to align the three main components of excellence, namely critical masses of talent, abundant resources, and appropriate governance, the latter being perhaps the most critical level of rapid change.
