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.
The JRC Annual Conference 2016 will focus on the importance of human capital for the prosperity of regions and cities.
The conference will take place on 11 October, at the Bozar in Brussels, within the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities.
Around 400 participants representing different academic fields, regions, cities, business and international organisations will participate.
During the conference, the European Commission's Knowledge Centre for Territorial Policies will be launched.
