    On 15 November the JRC-IRMM will host a graduation ceremony for the 2012 graduates of the Euromaster 'Measurement Science in Chemistry'. This pan-European consortium of universities, originally brought together by IRMM, aims at offering students access to a curriculum in analytical sciences that enables students to deal with the metrological requirements of ISO/IEC 17025.

    The training workshop aims to provide detailed knowledge on methods and procedures in the application of gamma-ray spectrometry to environmental samples. Beyond the standard approaches to efficiency calibration, difficulties of gamma-ray spectrometry with matrices in the form of volume sources and at low gamma-ray energy will be treated.

    The key challenge for science-based decision making in disaster management is to bridge the knowledge gap between available real-time scientific analysis supporting early warning and actions triggering early response. In many countries, this knowledge is fragmented among different scientific and technical communities (meteorology, hydrology, geophysical, GIS). Moreover, the approaches utilising this knowledge are diverse and would be more effective with improved coordination across operational agencies (national disaster management centres, civil protection, public health, transport, economy, security), across-borders. The UK Met Office and the European Commission’s in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), are addressing these issues through, respectively, the recent Natural Hazard Partnership of 15 public sector agencies and the JRC’s support to European Commission services.

    The initiative "Mapping Scientific Needs in the Arctic and Northern Areas" organised by the JRC and the Mission of Norway to the EU aims at highlighting science and research needs within a European context to tackle the challenges and realise opportunities in the Arctic and Northern Areas. The initiative will map out the potential for increased knowledge cooperation, focusing on three selected priorities relevant to the Arctic:
