The JRC is organising a workshop on the use of microsimulation modelling for fiscal policy analysis in Seville. The aim of the workshop is to gather policy makers and leading economists from the US and Europe who will provide examples of how microsimulation models are used for fiscal policy analysis in their institutions. Speakers will explain whether the models are open-source and made available to the research community.
The 2016 annual meeting of the JRC's community of practice on Big Data will focus on Big Data for Science and Policy.

NER 300 is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for highly innovative low-carbon energy demonstration projects, although it is not funded by the EU budget but by resources coming from the EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS). The programme is conceived as a catalyst for the demonstration of environmentally safe carbon capture and storage (CCS) and innovative renewable energy (RES) technologies on a commercial scale within the European Union. The programme (about EUR 2.1 billion) funds 38 projects in 19 EU countries.

Although science and art may not seem the most obvious of companions, over the past number of decades there has been an increase in the number of collaborations internationally.
The EuroScience Open Forum 2016 (ESOF) will bring together over 4,500 leading thinkers, innovators, policy makers, journalists and educators from more than 90 countries, to discuss current and future breakthroughs in contemporary science.
The JRC will take part part in 7 scientific sessions, which illustrate its role as an active player in the global arena and its multidisciplinary competence. More information on each of the individuals sessions can be found on the links below.
Thousands of vessels cross EU waters and hundreds enter into EU ports every day, generating an overwhelming amount of tracking data and reports that make it possible to disguise illegal operations. Detecting steadily changing deceptive behaviours at sea is becoming like trying to find a needle in a haystack and calls for advanced automatic and adaptive tools to discover useful information from the data.
The 6th Annual Conference of the Global Flood Partnership will take place in Ispra on 29, 30 June and 1 July.
