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.
The The Academy of Business in Society (ABIS) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) are pleased to invite you to join the webinar on the Scenario Exploration System – SES.
This foresight simulation tool provides a platform that engages participants in future-oriented systemic thinking.
It makes participants take action to reach their long-term objectives in contrasting scenario-related contexts while interacting with other stakeholders.
To better guide policy decision-making on mitigating the risk of climate change, novel and interdisciplinary approaches are required, which involve a dialogue between scientists from different communities (e.g., climate and impact modelling) and stakeholders to share data and knowledge. Credible and meaningful metrics need to be developed that can help quantifying risks related to physical climate change.
The Joint Research Centre intends to present its nuclear decommissioning activities and the new interim storage facility for radiological waste at its Ispra site (Italy). This initiative aims at informing local communities and stakeholders about the planned and on-going activities on nuclear decommissioning, making them more transparent and accessible to the public at large while being in compliance with the relevant Italian legislation in the nuclear field and the European Commission's transparency policy.
This webinar, organised by the Joint Research Centre, will give participants the opportunity to follow the conversation with some of the authors of a new book on how complex systems and social practice theories reframe the issue of energy sustainability in the time of renewables.
The biennial European Conference on Corporate R&D and Innovation proposes a 3 days programme networking with researchers from nearly 30 universities and technological institutes from across the world: Europe, North and South America.
The plenary and parallel sessions will also host international financial institutions, corporations and policy representatives from the US Patent and Trademark Office, the OECD or the European Commission.
JRC scientist Jean-Noël DRUON has been invited to be a guest speaker at the Event "Copernicus Marine Service: An EU asset for sustainable oceans", hosted by the European Parliament Intergroup on "Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development" and the MEPs Pavel Poc, Françoise Grossetête and Ricardo Serrão Santos at the European Parliament in Brussels on 26 September 2017.
