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.
Ecohydraulics is central to many challenges facing river and water resource management around the world. It links the disciplines of hydraulics with aquatic ecology, water engineering, fluvial geomorphology and biogeochemistry. The International Symposium on Ecohydraulics is the premier international meeting for scientists and innovative practitioners working across these disciplines focussing on the underpinning science and its application.
The training (26-28 September 2016) will offer the lessons learnt from the JRC assessments on more than 100 well-known composite indicators and scoreboards.
How do we use resilience-based seismic engineering to steward our built environment and make it safer, resilient and sustainable in the future? It is the objective of this workshop to assess and develop strategies on how to improve community resilience against a major event.
Big Data from Space refers to the massive spatio-temporal Earth and Space observation data collected by space-borne and ground-based sensors. This emerging domain is currently facing sharp increase - fortunately paralleled by tremendous amount of new developments and breakthroughs software developments, such as multi-temporal data analysis, data management and information extraction technologies.
The 2016 MARS Conference will provide a platform to present Member State experiences and other observations regardubg the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS), including developments in shared management.
During the Conference, challenges and opportunities for image use, aspects of performance and the future outlook of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will also be discussed.
The Conference will take place in Lisbon on 24 and 25 November, from 9 am to 5 pm.
The EUBCE is the event in which the members of the bioenergy community can get a broad picture of the situation and trends emerging in today's market.
The Conference provides a high-level scientific programme and parallel events which attract participants from a wide-ranging background: researchers, engineers, technologists, standards organisations, financial institutions, policy makers and decision makers.
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.
The focus changed from feed safety to feed security and other challenges, ranging from traceability to new feed materials. The conference therefore intends to bring together colleagues from different horizons, such as research organisations, industry academia and public organisation, reflecting the diversity of feed challenges, to discuss the current and future challenges related to feed.
