The Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the National Centre for Nuclear Research (NCBJ) of Poland signed today a collaboration agreement focusing on nuclear material research, security, and medical applications.
The Collaboration Agreement will be of mutual benefit for both organisations and allows developing synergies in different areas of nuclear research. It will support fostering JRC scientific excellence by pursuing common research and implementing the JRC Education and Training strategy. In addition, the agreement opens JRC's research infrastructure to external scientific use.
The 2016 fire season in Chile started earlier than usual. By November 2016 the area burned by forest fires was already 400% larger than the average for the last 10 years. The pattern of high fire danger, driven mainly by high temperatures and strong winds, was predominant in the following months, leading to a dramatic situation in January 2017.
