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.
This conference aims to provide a forum for presenting and debating current methodological and applied research on the topics of economics, statistics and econometrics of education. It will include invited speakers' lectures, organized thematic sessions, contributed parallel and poster sessions.
The following invited speakers are confirmed:
The SEURAT-1 research initiative on the replacement of in vivo repeated dose systemic toxicity testing will keep their 5th annual meeting 21-22 January 2015 in Barcelona. The main subjects of the meeting are: the proof-of-concept case studies, proving that toxicity prediction and chemical safety assessment can be based on alternative methods, and the many new methods developed by the SEURAT-1 partners. SEURAT-1 is co-financed by the European Commission (FP7) and Cosmetics Europe.
On 20 - 21 January 2015, a training course, co-organised with the Secretariat-General, will look at the key steps in impact assessment (IA) and the fundamental questions about the use of modelling for IA.
The Radio Spectrum Workshop aims to provide essential training to scientists and policy makers in the E&IA countries.
The 9th Arctic Frontiers conference will be held in Tromsø, Norway, with the title: Climate and Energy, from Sunday 18 January to Friday 23 January 2015.
The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge about statistical evaluation of cylinder test data and their interpretation with respect to safety assessment. Essentials, which will be introduced and elaborated, are:
- Influence of test parameters on test results including scatter from non-controlled test parameters
- basics about degradation investigated by cycle and burst testing
- basics of statistics and its use in evaluation of test data
- basics of safety assessment by using statistics.
The third plenary session of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services' (IPBES) will be held from 12 to 17 January 2015, in Bonn, Germany.
The IPBES was established in April 2012, as an independent intergovernmental body open to all member countries of the United Nations. It is the leading intergovernmental body for assessing the state of the planet's biodiversity, its ecosystems and the essential services they provide to society.
The Armand Peugeot Chair is organizing its Second International Conference on electromobility.
This school is intended to provide a practical introduction to the analysis of measured neutron-induced resonance reaction data and to the processing of experimental and evaluated data. Lectures and hands-on computer exercises will be alternated. Topics include neutron-induced reactions, R-matrix theory, neutron time-of-flight measurements, uncertainty and covariance assessment, data formats (ENDF, EXFOR), use of the resonance analysis code REFIT and related topics.
The Workshop on Employability of Chemists: Study Progress will focus on discussing the use of innovative educational approaches, improving employment prospects and skill levels of young people and increasing their labour market access and employability, also stimulating entrepreneurial skills of students and academics.
