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 European Commission's Directorates Joint Research Centre (JRC) and Research (RTD) jointly organise the 3rd European Conference on Corporate R&D (CONCORD-2011).
The ICT4Peace Foundation, the Swiss Confederation and the European Commission’s Joint Research Center are pleased to announce and invite you to participate at the 3rd International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) in Geneva on 14-15 November 2011.
The overall objective of the conference is to continue the efforts of the International Association for Experimental Structural Engineering (IAESE) to promote international collaboration and dissemination of research findings within IAESE's core research area. The event will cover all aspects of experimental structural engineering, ranging from novel testing and measuring techniques, to computer-controlled experiments, and results of interesting experiments.
The 4th International Seville Future-Oriented Technology Analysis (FTA) Conference will be held 12 - 13 May 2011, at the JRC Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) in Seville, Spain. The focus of the conference is on the need and potential of FTA to address dynamic and disruptive events in response to grand societal challenges. These events may range from rapid technological changes to shifts in social norms, values and lifestyles. FTA is a potential tool to gain a better understanding of the complex systems that interact in each situation and in defining effective policy responses. Therefore, governments and other organisations can become more adaptive and capable of enacting systemic changes. This bi-annual conference is an opportunity for the scientific and policy-maker community in the FTA area to meet and to mutually deepen their knowledge.
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 6th Summer School will be held from 14th to 17th June 2011. This school will be co-sponsored by the ACTINET I3
The 7th Symposium on targeted therapy with alpha emitters will be organised by the Institute for Transuranium Elements of the European Commission, Joint Research Centre together with Eckert & Ziegler Eurotope GmbH.
The AAAS Annual Meeting is a platform for the most current thinking and research findings in science, technology, and policy. It brings together thousands of scientists, engineers, educators, and policy-makers as well as hundreds of national and international science reporters and writers.
European and American policymakers, researchers and industry representatives on Monday 21 November discussed closer scientific co-operation in support of clean energy and sustainable mobility. The high level Brussels-held seminar was jointly organised by the JRC and the US Mission to the European Union. Titled ‘Building a Transatlantic Scientific Bridge’, it was timely scheduled ahead of next week’s two key events: the US-EU summit and the Transatlantic Economic Council in Washington, which will feature science and electro-mobility high on the co-operation agenda.
Together with the European Commission's DG Education and Culture and the European Expert Network on Economics of Education (EENEE), the Center for Research in Lifelong Learning (CRELL) of the JRC is organising the International Conference “Catch the Train: Skills, Education and Jobs" conference, at Tour Madou, Brussels (BE), on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st June 2011.
