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.
In 2005 the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO), together with the Oceanography Society (TOS), organised an International Ocean Research Conference to discuss the expected developments in marine sciences over the next decade. Now, almost ten years later, in light of the advances in ocean sciences and technologies and also after important science-policy developments, this new International Ocean Research Conference will discuss and plan the coming decade of international collaboration in marine sciences and technology.
The Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) in Rome will host the second international conference on the collection and interpretation of traditional and non-traditional fishery dependent data.
Comprehensive and reliable fisheries data and information is needed to provide sound scientific advice, feeding into fisheries management and policy frameworks in order to ensure sustainability in the fisheries sector and future profitable exploitation of fish stocks.
The 2nd International Workshop on the European Atlas of Natural Radiation (IWEANR 2017) will be held in the town of Verbania, Italy, from Monday 6 November at 14:00 to Thursday 9 November at 16:00. The main aim of the workshop is to present the status and discuss progress of the European Atlas of Natural Radiation.
As part of the Manchester European City of Science initiatives, the JRC together with Manchester Metropolitan University presents for the second time a unique communication initiative: a Science café, entitled "Global Science Local Impact".
The second meeting organised by the European Commission with Commissioners General for Expo 2015 of the EU Member States will have on the agenda:
A welcome address by Vladimír Šucha, Director General, European Commission, Joint Research Centre
A session chaired by David Wilkinson, Commissioner General for the participation of the European Commission to EXPO 2015, with interventions from:
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 overall theme of the 33rd International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment (ISRSE), organised jointly by the JRC and the International Center for Remote Sensing of Environment (Tucson, Arizona), is the use of Earth Observation systems and airborne techniques for understanding and managing the Earth environment and natural resources.
