    A JRC information exchange event was held in Chisinau, Moldova, on 8 November 2010, followed by a workshop on foresight on 9 November. Both events were organised together with the Academy of Sciences of Moldova that serves as the ministry of science in the country. The objective of the information event was to deliver an insight on the JRC's activities with specific focus on metrology (IRMM) and identify possible areas of collaboration. The foresight workshop reflected the Moldovan request to inform the national experts on foresight methods with a view of initiating such an exercise in the future.

    The JRC annual lecture was given on 27 October by Yvo de Boer, Special Global Advisor, Climate Change and Sustainability, KPMG and former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Speaking on the topic of "Climate services: fit for purpose?", Mr. de Boer explained the ingredients for their success. Such services have to be put in the context of citizens' local relevance - even if this means extrapolating data at local level - and their frequency has to be appropriate. Only then, they will be able to provide their crucial role of supporting the policy-making process, bringing business on board and contributing to the creation of a public understanding.
