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 will be the tenth of a series of well-established workshops on experimental, theoretical, simulation, and applied aspects of the thermophysical behaviour of matter in the millisecond to picosecond time regimes. It will include, among others, rapid resistive or inductive heating (volume), pulsed laser heating (surface), and levitation techniques. Presentations regarding new experimental techniques in the area of subsecond thermophysics are always welcome. The emphasis will be on measurements of thermophysical properties at high temperatures.
The Joint Research Centre, Institute for Transuranium Elements is organising in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the 19th International QUENCH Workshop, to be held at the KIT, Campus North, November 19-21, 2013.
The nuclear safety related workshop is supported by the JRC Enlargement and Integration Action, as well as by the Alliance for Competence in Nuclear Technology, Germany.
In the frame of the JRC Enlargement and Integration action, a three day workshop entitled "Metrology in Chemistry - Implementing the requirements of the ISO/IEC 17025"
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.
EU food safety legislation establishes a cascade of methods that shall be used for official control purposes. Preference is given to either methods described in Community legislation or methods that comply with internationally recognised rules or protocols, for example those that the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) has accepted.
Standardised methods of analysis offer many advantages, the proven performance and the extensive documentation being their hallmarks.
The JRC is pleased to host the 5th edition of the Summer School on Operational issues in Radioactive Waste Management and Nuclear Decommissioning from 9 to 13 September in Ispra, Italy. Organised in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Milan State University (Università degli Studi di Milano) and the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA) it will bring together international experts in the nuclear field.
The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS, European Commission) will host next September in Seville the 5th international workshop "The Output of R&D activities: Harnessing the Power of Patents Data". It will cover the relations between patents, and other intellectual property rights, and Research & Development and Innovation (RDI) activities as well as the factors affecting such relations.
The JRC supports the 6th International Summer School on Measurement Science in Chemistry, held at the University Claude Bernard from 7 until 20 July. The Summer School is run by a consortium of 9 universities (one from Belgium, Estonia, Finland, Portugal and Slovenia, and three from Poland).
Every two years the JRC-ITU organises Summer Schools on Actinide Science at its laboratories in Karlsruhe. Young researchers from all over the world have participated in lectures, laboratory visits and demonstrations. The 7th Summer School will be held from 16th to 19th July 2013. This school will be co-sponsored by the ACTINET I3
