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 use of digital text data text analytics reduces the time required to conduct an evaluation. Is text analytics relevant in providing intelligent insights into a research and innovation field? Furthermore, is it of any relevance as a horizon scanning tool to identify gaps and avenues at the science-policy interface to best respond to emerging policy needs?
With the adoption of the 2015 Paris Agreement, 194 world countries committed to keep global warming well below 2°ͦC compared to pre-industrial levels, and to strive to limit it to 1.5°C.
However, countries’ mitigation actions, as pledged in their national climate plans – or nationally determined contributions (NDCs) in the UNFCCC lingo – currently fall short of this ambition.
A new conceptual framework on hybrid threats designed by researchers aims to increase the understanding of hybrid threats and facilitate the development of effective measures to improve resilience against these threats.
The 'hybrid threats' concept refers to coordinated action conducted by hostile state or non-state actors with the deliberate goal to undermine or harm democratic states.
