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 Career Fair (ECF) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is recruiting event that connects employers from Europe with talented graduates, researchers and other job seekers that live in the US. Through networking and job interviews, the fair facilitates contacts between European employers and possible candidates who are interested in living and working in Europe.
ESOF is Europe’s largest, general science meeting held every two years. It aims to showcase the latest advances in science and technology; promote a dialogue on the role of science and technology in society and public policy, and simulate public interest and debate about science and technology.
JRC-IRMM will have a booth.
