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 workshop, organised by the European Commission, the US DoE (USA), NOW (Germany) and NEDO (Japan), aims at generating an exchange of international experience and knowledge in order to discuss current challenges and to develop new strategies to further integrate hydrogen and fuel cell technologies into the global energy portfolio with a special focus on the transportation sector.
Transport Research Arena 2016 – a transport research event in Europe, gathering every 2 years the key stakeholders: researchers, experts, operators, industry and policy-makers.
At the 9th of March’s External Cooperation Info Point, IES scientist Apollonia Miola will give a presentation in which she will speak about "Climate resilient and low carbon development - the new JRC global index to support the EU’s Global Climate Change Alliance+ (GCCA+) programme within the context of the SDGs".
The JRC’s new open source index facilitates the ex-ante evaluation of the structural features of the vulnerability to climate change of the target countries of the GCCA+.
On 4 November, the Joint Research Centre is hosting a roundtable discussion on how transformative technologies and disruptive innovations such as AeroMobil, "the flying car" can be used and brought into real life.
The inauguration of the European Interoperability Centre for Electric Vehicles and Smart Grids will be held in conjunction with the International Symposium "Towards a Transatlantic E-Mobility Market"on 28th – 29th October 2015 in Ispra, Italy.
The two-day Symposium will bring together key stakeholders to discuss aspects related to interoperability - Vehicles and Grids - and concrete actions to pave the way towards an e-mobility market.
The workshop is organized in collaboration with IEFE-Bocconi and with the contribution of the COST Action INOGOV.
The workshop aims to share methodologies and best practices on policies integrating the dimensions of low carbon and smart innovations in European cities.
Main sessions will regard: monitoring, measuring and benchmarking; standards and protocols; governance innovations; financing plans and actions.
Speakers include representatives of international organizations, universities and research centres, the EU, national and local governments.
The 6th edition of the International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) will take place on the 23th to 25th of February 2016 in Edinburgh. ICOE 2016 is organised and hosted by RenewableUK.
The JRC will be present at the exhibition with a small stand at booth 72, promoting the SET-Plan and JRC work on ocean renewable energy.
JRC colleagues are also involved as speakers and chair persons in the conference, which will be opened by Commissioner Vella.
The 3-day summer school will bring together scientists and policy-makers from the field of energy to learn how to better use evidence for policy-making.
The objective of the conference is to strengthen cooperation in strategic areas, which will bring added value to Slovak science as well as help to integrate it even better within the European Research Area.
A two-day workshop on road transport emissions modelling will take place, providing participants with background information on the subject.
