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 School on the Physics and Chemistry of the Actinides will be organised as a tutorial session to the JdA conference.
The biennial ICRM conference gathers both leading experts and beginners and is providing an opportunity for exchange of information on the development of techniques and new applications of radionuclide metrology, and to encourage international cooperation in this field.
The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge about statistical evaluation of cylinder test data and their interpretation with respect to safety assessment. Essentials, which will be introduced and elaborated, are:
- Influence of test parameters on test results including scatter from non-controlled test parameters
- basics about degradation investigated by cycle and burst testing
- basics of statistics and its use in evaluation of test data
- basics of safety assessment by using statistics.
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.
Quality matters - measuring sunlight spectral content for solar energy applications
JRC-Geel is organising the 7th Project Advisory Committee meeting of the EUFRAT Transnational Access project on July 6, 2017.
The Joint Research Centre in Geel is running a successful open access programme, entitled 'European Facilities for Nuclear Reaction and Decay Data Measurements' (EUFRAT).
Within EUFRAT JRC-Geel offers open access to its nuclear facilities for external researchers from the Member States and beyond.
The summer school is provided by a consortium of nine European universities, with JRC as the mentoring organisation, who together deliver a Master’s Degree Programme offering education in measurement science. An important activity of the Measurement Science in Chemistry (MSC) Euromaster is the summer school – an intensive course focusing on quality assurance in measurement science in chemistry. This year 41 students from 12 different countries will participate (Belgium, Estonia, Finland, France, Malawi, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Tunisia).
The event will focus on raising awareness of the benefits of standardisation from the research and innovation process by examining the transfer of research results and outcomes of innovation activities into standardisation.
In the frame of the Europe and Metrology in Turkey project, a 2-day workshop on the preparation of certified reference materials will be held in Turkey for approximately 40-50 participants.
