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 workshop is organised by the Agriculture Unit of JRC-IPSC , in collaboration with the GEO Global Agricultural Monitoring and in the framework of the support of JRC to the Food Security Information Systems in the Horn of Africa.
The 10th annual SET Plan conference conjoined with the 11th Central European Energy Conference (CEEC XI), will be held under the auspices of the Estonian's EU Council Presidency, but organised by Slovakia. Thus, it will take place on 29 November – 01 December 2017 in Bratislava, as last year.
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 17th International Symposium on Landscape Ecology, organised by the Institute of Landscape Ecology, Slovak Ecological Society and Constantine the Philosopher University, will be held in Nitra, Slovakia, from 27-29 May 2015.
This symposium aims to explore the current concepts and trends in landscape ecology and the links to other landscape-related issues.
JRC scientist Peter Vogt will give an oral presentation on latest JRC-research on landscape fragmentation assessment schemes.
The first AMESD (African Monitoring of the Environment for Sustainable Development) Forum will take place in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (1-4 Dec.’09) on the theme “Towards a Pan African Partnership and Networking for the monitoring of the Environment by Satellite in Africa”. It will be organised in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment, Conservation of Nature and Tourism, and the International Commission for Congo-Ubangui-Sangha Basin. The environmental monitoring "e-station" developed within the JRC Institute for Environment and Sustainability (IES) will be demonstrated for the first time to the African users.
The IPC Food Security Working Group will work with the IPC Nutrition Working Group (IPC NWG) to capture cross-cutting lessons learned to prepare and develop a consolidated, articulated, and harmonized Integrated Food and Nutrition Security Phase Classification System that consists of the three IPC Classification scales (IPC Acute Food Insecurity, IPC Acute Malnutrition, and IPC Chronic Food Insecurity).
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.
