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 S3 Platform organises a Peer eXchange and Learning workshop on Policy Instruments for innovation strategies for smart specialisation (RIS3).
Emilia-Romagna (Italy), Northern Netherlands (Holland) and Wielkopolska (Poland) regions will provide a short account of their experience in designing and implementing policy instruments for the implementation of their respective RIS3. The event will gather representatives from more than 50 regional and national authorities.
JRC scientists have explored the application of Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOP) to improve mechanistic understanding of human disease pathophysiology in order to advance biomedical research and inform the development of new drugs.
The AOP concept was originally developed to facilitate better use of mechanistic understanding in determining the toxicological properties of chemicals.
In particular, the goal has been to deliver reliable, animal-free methodologies for the hazard and risk assessment of chemicals, making greater use of in vitro and in silico methods.
The Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy is organising a High Level Event to showcase the results achieved so far and to discuss on the most effective ways to keep assisting regions specialised in the energy domain. Particular focus will be given to the interregional cooperation dynamics in the domains of bioenergy, smart grids, sustainable buildings, marine renewables and solar.
