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 18th meeting of the EC-US Task Force on Biotechnology is hosted by the JRC Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP). The meeting has been preceded by a workshop on "Current status and potential developments of nanobiotechnology research" on 3-4 June in Ispra.
The theme of the 2009 AAAS Meeting is "Our Planet and Its Life: Origins and Futures" recognizes that 2009 is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. New understanding of the processes that fascinated Darwin continues to be the focus of intense research 150 years later.
23-25 November 2015, Ispra, Italy - 2 days.
The workshop will focus on physico-chemical and biological characterisation of nanovectors in relation to their biological effect and biodistribution.
An enlargement & integration workshop on cyclotron research and radio-labelled nanoparticles, as part of the yearly cyclotron networking workshops (with participation of approximately 15-20 relevant research institutions), is scheduled for 15-16 December 2009 at the JRC Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) in Ispra, Italy.
Research in nanomaterials is expected to provide critical contributions to the advancement in electrochemical energy technologies and to address the important issue of sustainability. Progress in these cross-disciplinary areas can be best achieved through coordinated and cooperative actions. This event provided a unique opportunity for those involved in research (including funding and policy) in Europe and India to identify synergies and mutual needs to push forward progress and provide benefits for both regions.
Representatives of the Consortium members (11 organisations from 9 European countries, coordinated by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment) and members of the international Strategic Policy Development Group of the ProSafe project have presented, discussed and provided advice on the progress made in the first 7 months.
The JRC hosted an international workshop dedicated to the characterisation of nanomaterials and nanomedicine in Ispra (IT) on 23-25 November 2015.
The programme focused on recent advances in nanobiosciences promising a decisive impact on the formulation of new medicinal products.
On 13th and 14th November 2014, in Ispra, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (JRC-IHCP), held a two-day long workshop dedicated to cyclotron accelerator research and nanoparticle labelling.
The JRC, together with the European Union Satellite Centre (Torrejón), hosted an Information Exchange Day with Spanish stakeholders in Madrid on 2 June. More than 100 high-level participants from government, research and industry gained insight into the JRC's new ten-year strategy and work done by the JRC Institutes for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS), Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) and Protection and Security of the Citizen (IPSC).
