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.
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.
The aim of this workshop is to present the technical/scientific results of what has been achieved in 20 years' time and the experience in operating it, and to exchange information on new or existing monitoring techniques.
The 2008 ESARDA Annual Meeting, held in Luxembourg from 27 to 29 May 2008, focused on the new safeguards approaches in a more global context. The participants, among them many Euratom nuclear inspectors and recognised actors and practitioners of safeguards, highly valued first-hand insights into current issues and their effect on safeguards and non proliferation. Prof. Thomas Fanghänel, Director of the JRC Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU), presented the research activities of the JRC in this area, as well as its co-operation and training activities.
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.
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 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.
Organised under the French Presidency of the European Union, the Third European Security Research Conference (SRC'08) is being held in Paris on 29 and 30 September 2008. The objective of SRC'08 is to demonstrate the concrete implications of security research for citizens, on the one hand, and to stress the need to bring together research and innovation offers and security needs and the market on the other hand.
The ICT4Peace Foundation, the Swiss Confederation and the European Commission’s Joint Research Center are pleased to announce and invite you to participate at the 3rd International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) in Geneva on 14-15 November 2011.
The JRC Institute for the Protection and the Security of the Citizen (IPSC) organises the 4th academic course in Nuclear Safeguards and Non-Proliferation in collaboration with the European Safeguards Research and Development Association (ESARDA). The course will take place from 14 to 18 April 2008 hosted by the IPSC Nuclear Safeguards Unit.
