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.
This not-for-profit Conference aims at putting Energy Storage – in all its facets – on the map and at fostering discussion and networking with stakeholders from the entire energy value chain.
Piotr Szymanski, Director of JRC Directorate C, will be opening the 1st day. Stathis Peteves, Unit head of C7 and Andreas Zucker will be speakers on Day 1.
Dominique Ristori, Director General of DG ENER, will be delivering a key note speech on the 2nd day and Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President in charge of the Energy Union, the keynote speech of the 3rd day.
Innovation is not a phenomenon that occurs in a vacuum, it is intimately linked to local conditions and eco-systems and one of its key drivers is the complex interaction between the economic, scientific, academic, human and intellectual capital stock of a given area or region.
The Macro-Regional Innovation Week intends to focus on the exchange of best practices and knowledge among local and international policy and decision makers, academics, financial actors and various types of innovation and technology transfer practitioners.
The training (26-28 September 2016) will offer the lessons learnt from the JRC assessments on more than 100 well-known composite indicators and scoreboards.
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.
This workshop aims at establishing a consensus between research, industry and standardisation communities on the relevant technical issues involved, on the scope and nature of standardisation measures needed and at identifying a common way forward, including regulatory impacts.
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.
Plutonium Futures - The Science series of conferences provides an international forum for discussion of current research on physical and chemical properties of plutonium and other actinide elements in complex systems. The scientific sessions will be held at the Kongresshaus Baden-Baden, from September 18th to 22nd, 2016.
On the 15th of September, Dr. Rob Hagendijk will visit JRC Ispra to present a seminar entitled “Rare diseases as a real time policy laboratory: Citizen engagement and public health”, as part of the “contro-corrente” series of seminars.
Date: 15th September 14.30-16.00 Ispra, ROOM 101/1302
