Europe is now witnessing a growing movement of policy labs and other public innovation teams at EU, national, regional and local levels of governance. Their experimental, creative and citizen-centred approaches are changing the ways policies are shaped and delivered, putting forward alternative solutions in a time when our institutions require more robust and adaptable responses to complex situations.
This two-day conference will bring together users and providers of scientific advice on critical, global issues.
Following on from the success of Science meets parliaments in 2015, the JRC will organise the 2016 edition on 8 November 2016 in Brussels.
The event will bring together Members of the European Parliament (MEP) and scientists in a series of bilateral meetings, as well as the now established Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA) MEP-Scientist Pairing Scheme.

This is a technical workshop with hands-on training exercises, which will introduce the global air quality scenario screening tool TM5-FASST to users interested in the evaluation of global and regional pollutant emission scenarios, particularly focusing on the concentrations of air pollutants and their impacts on human health and ecosystems.
This course provides participants with the theoretical basis for the estimation of measurement uncertainty and establishment of traceability. Measurement uncertainty and traceability are essential for the evaluation of measurement results.
The EURL for Mycotoxins workshop will inform the participants about the activities carried out by the EURL-Mycotoxins in 2016 and will discuss the prospects for 2017.
ND2016 is the primary conference for the advancement of nuclear data in the interest of both science and technology. It addresses all important active fields of investigation: fundamental nuclear physics, astrophysics, nuclear energy, nuclear medicine, nuclear non-proliferation, safeguards and arms control.
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.
The 8th International Summer School on Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Management will take place from 12-16th September 2016 at the JRC in Ispra, Italy. The participants will be able to discuss issues directly with experts and other delegates, and have the opportunity to learn from their international experience.
The JOPRAD consortium would like to invite you to its Mid-Term Workshop that will be held on the 7- 8th September 2016 at the Congress Centre, Prague, Czech Republic. The Mid-Term Workshop will enable “programme owners” and “programme managers” in EU Member-States to evaluate the feasibility and the added-value of the implementation of Joint Programming at European level. Further details are also available on the JOPRAD website.
