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 great recession that followed the financial crisis increased the need to find innovative ways to re-launch growth and make it in socially sustainable manner. Many initiatives have been launched, but there is limited evidence of the results obtained, especially if we look at the comprehensive social and economic impact achieved.
The European Commission’s Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography (KCMD) and the IOM's Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) organise the workshop on Big Data and alternative data sources on migration: from case studies to policy support.
Researchers, data holders/providers, policymakers and practitioners will gather to:
This Tenth Summer School on Sensitivity Analysis, organised by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), aims to illustrate the motivations to conduct Sensitivity Analysis on simulation models
It offers accessible treatment of the techniques used in Global Sensitivity Analysis.
The programme will start from the first principles and will guide the students through the full range of recommended practices with exercises and application examples.
The scientific programme covers topics such as:
Background and objectives
If we think about nature conservation or increasing essential ecosystem services we usually think of protected areas, conserving valuable ecosystems such as forest and wetlands, or maintaining rural landscapes. But can cities also help achieve biodiversity goals and targets? This largely depends on the amount, the quality and management of urban green infrastructure. However, the potential of cities to help protect biodiversity and ecosystem services is likely underestimated.
As the European Commission’s science and knowledge service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) regularly provides scientific and technical advice for the development and implementation of EU policy on climate action.
In this capacity, two JRC experts will advise the EU's delegation to COP23, the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
JRC will also organise side events on different thematic areas, which will be held at the EU Pavilion.
The European Commission Joint Research Center (JRC), the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) and the FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy of the University of Cyprus invite you to their Workshop on Smart Grids Research and Innovation priorities.
