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 biennial ICRM conference gathers both leading experts and beginners and is providing an opportunity for exchange of information on the development of techniques and new applications of radionuclide metrology, and to encourage international cooperation in this field.
EU food safety legislation establishes a cascade of methods that shall be used for official control purposes. Preference is given to either methods described in Community legislation or methods that comply with internationally recognised rules or protocols, for example those that the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) has accepted.
Standardised methods of analysis offer many advantages, the proven performance and the extensive documentation being their hallmarks.
The summer school is provided by a consortium of nine European universities, with JRC as the mentoring organisation, who together deliver a Master’s Degree Programme offering education in measurement science. An important activity of the Measurement Science in Chemistry (MSC) Euromaster is the summer school – an intensive course focusing on quality assurance in measurement science in chemistry. This year 41 students from 12 different countries will participate (Belgium, Estonia, Finland, France, Malawi, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Tunisia).
EEMODS is an established international conference where policymakers and energy efficiency experts from industry, research labs, universities and standardisation organisations meet every two years to discuss energy efficiency policies and technologies progress in electric motor systems (pumps, compressors, fans, drives, etc.).
This conference, organised by theaimed to provide reliable evidence based on patent data analysis to support European innovation policies for a Digital Single Market. Industry representatives, digital innovation analysts and policy makers discussed the latest thinking on the following issues in the relationship between digital technologies and patents:
The event will focus on raising awareness of the benefits of standardisation from the research and innovation process by examining the transfer of research results and outcomes of innovation activities into standardisation.
This workshop intends to contribute towards the transfer of background knowledge and expertise on the Eurocodes, mainly the EN 1993, from specialists of the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) to potential trainers and Eurocodes users.
