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.
Policy puzzles are topics for which economists have a clear policy prescription but where actual policies do not follow it.
In this workshop participants explored the reasons for this, whether economic prescriptions were wrong or there were peculiarities in the political decision mechanism to look at.
Wouter van der Wielen, from the JRC Fiscal Policy Analysis team, presented the set-up of the ongoing project "The impact of unemployment evolutions and uncertainty in fiscal forecasting".
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.
The 2016 annual meeting of the JRC's community of practice on Big Data will focus on Big Data for Science and Policy.

The 2014 Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) entitled 'Science Building Bridges' is an open platform for debating science and a showcase for European and global research at all levels.
ESOF 2014 will be a unique opportunity for leading scientists, young researchers, students, entrepreneurs, policymakers, journalists and the general public to discuss new discoveries and debate the direction that research is taking in all the sciences.
The scope of the course is to give a general introduction to methods of identification and global sensitivity analysis, their DYNARE implementation (identification toolbox and global sensitivity analysis toolbox) and their application to Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) macroeconomic models.
Many Intellectual Property platforms have been created with various degrees of success but no widely recognised institution exists that can help owners wanting to sell or license their Intellectual Property or support buyers in identifying IP that they may be interested in purchasing.
This state of affairs perpetuates a situation in the Intellectual Property market in which costs are high and deals are made only following extensive negotiation (often on the basis of non-transparent price structures).
