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 theme of the 3rd International Conference on Biodiversity and the UN Millennium Development Goals, organised by the French CNRS Institut Ecologie et Environnement (InEE) and the German Leibniz Association (WGL), is "Biodiversity and Food Security – From Trade-offs to Synergies".
The 2015 Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) Global Event, co-organised by DG DEVCO and the JRC at the JRC Ispra site in the context of EXPO Milan 2015, aims to raise awareness on IPC, present key scientific outputs, get feedback from policy makers on innovations for chronic food insecurity and nutrition classification, and showcase the link between IPC and decision-making.
This is the third year that JRC-IPTS (Seville) hosts a General Equilibrium workshop to exchange views with researchers from all over Europe and all over the world.
The presence of so many experts from the academic world and from the economic analysis units of the Commission has been a precious occasion to share views and compare approaches and methodologies.
This workshop has been the result of a joint collaboration with DG REGIO to define its structure and the themes to be treated.
Organised by ADEME (Direction villes et territoires durables (DVTD) - Service friches urbaines et sites pollués (SFUSP)), this meeting brings together the researchers and managers of contaminated sites to discuss the problem of pollution from industry and agriculture and present the progress made over the past five years.
IES scientist Ana Paya Perez will present the progress made in the management of contaminated sites in Europe, and research projects related to this subject.
The "45èmes Journées des Actinides" brings together experts from all fields related to actinides, young scientists and students, stimulates the presentation and dissemination of new results as well as discussions and collaborations.
The JRC Institute for the Protection and the Security of the Citizen (IPSC) organises the 4th academic course in Nuclear Safeguards and Non-Proliferation in collaboration with the European Safeguards Research and Development Association (ESARDA). The course will take place from 14 to 18 April 2008 hosted by the IPSC Nuclear Safeguards Unit.
The fourth edition of the European Union's two-day Forum on Fossil Fuels opens today in Berlin. Initiated by the European Commission (Directorate General Transport and Energy) as a platform for dialogue with other stakeholders in the European energy sector (corporations, industry associations, Member State Governments and civil society), the forum was held for the first time in October 2005 in Berlin , where it has been held annually since then. The German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology hosts the event.
At the end of the Galileo IOV satellites test phase and just before the launch of ESA’s scientific GAIA mission with the goal of obtaining the largest, most precise three‐dimensional map of our Galaxy by surveying more than a thousand million stars, the 4th International Colloquium on Galileo and GNSS Science, co‐organized by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European GNSS Agency (GSA), is inviting to an interesting programme.
