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.
Every month the JRC Science & Policy Briefing offers an overview of "What's on the EU's agenda", focusing on the activities of the European Institutions, on European and International Conferences/Meetings and on JRC news/press releases.
Even with increased production, by 2050 the European pulp and paper industry can reduce its energy consumption by 14% and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 62% compared to 2015 levels.
The industry is the fourth most energy-intensive in Europe, so these reductions could play a big role in Europe's transition to a low carbon economy.
JRC scientists contributed to a review of the state-of-the-science on available mechanisms and assays to assess acute inhalation toxicity with a focus on non-animal testing approaches.
Scientists from the JRC's EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) joined a working group, together with other international experts, to assess acute inhalation toxicity. They discussed how existing knowledge can be used to design effective non-animal testing approaches.
Why do people migrate?
International migration will continue to be a significant topic for European and global policymaking.
Quantitative assessment presents factors that are the most important drivers of migration flows around the world.
This research could inform policies that help Europe to prepare effectively and to put international initiatives like the upcoming Global Compact for Migration into practice.
