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 training will include a workshop where academics and JRC researchers will share their knowledge on composite indicators.
The 2014 Conference on Big Data From Space, co-organised by the European Space Agency, the European Union Satellite Centre and the JRC, aims to bring together researchers, engineers, and users in the area of Big Data in the Space sector. The focus is on the whole data lifecycle, ranging from data acquisition by spaceborne and ground-based sensors to data management, analysis and exploitation in the domains of Earth Observation, Space Science, Space Engineering, Space Weather, etc.
The 20th Latin American Congress of Soil Science, be organised by the Latin American Soil Science Society (SLCS) and the Peruvian Soil Science Society (SPCS), will be held in Cuzco, Peru, from 9-15 November 2014. The Congress aims to be a platform for scientific and cultural exchanges between researchers, teachers, students, professionals and anyone interested in the conservation of soil and water in Latin America.
The JRC plans to present the new Soil Atlas of Latin America at this event.
The main purpose of this conference is to offer an opportunity for Member States Administrations, EU officials, Image Providers and contractors to meet and discuss particular problems or innovations concerning the management of the Common Agriculture Policy.
The World Congress of Soil Science (WCSS) has been held on a quadrennial basis since 1927 as a scientific meeting in the area of soil science. the 20th WCSS is expected to gather over 2 500 participants, from science and industry, from more than 100 countries around the world. A wide range of scientific programs and stimulating social activities will be organised under the theme, “Soils Embrace Life and Universe”. The JRC plans to have a stand at the congress.
The Armand Peugeot Chair is organizing its Second International Conference on electromobility.
The European Reference Network for Critical Infrastructure Protection (ERNCIP) is planning to organise a 2nd workshop for infrastructure operators. With this workshop ERNCIP aims to continue the successful collaboration with operators within the network, building on the experience from the first workshop that was held in Brussels last year. We hope to make this workshop a very interactive one with plenty of time for discussions among the participants.
In 2005 the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO), together with the Oceanography Society (TOS), organised an International Ocean Research Conference to discuss the expected developments in marine sciences over the next decade. Now, almost ten years later, in light of the advances in ocean sciences and technologies and also after important science-policy developments, this new International Ocean Research Conference will discuss and plan the coming decade of international collaboration in marine sciences and technology.
The Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) in Rome will host the second international conference on the collection and interpretation of traditional and non-traditional fishery dependent data.
Comprehensive and reliable fisheries data and information is needed to provide sound scientific advice, feeding into fisheries management and policy frameworks in order to ensure sustainability in the fisheries sector and future profitable exploitation of fish stocks.
