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-managed Smart Specialisation Platform is organising a Peer eXchange and Learning (PXL) workshop on multi-level governance for RIS3 as part of a new series of peer review workshops. It is organised by the S3 Platform in co-operation with the Basque Government and Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness. It brings together national, regional and sub-regional policy makers from EU countries, representatives from the European Commission and researchers on the field.
JRC scientists have developed the first comprehensive inventory of publicly available tools that are ready to be used for nanomaterial safety assessment.
From the residence of the Grand Dukes of Baden to the center of the technology region - Karlsruhe has many faces and looks back on a very young city history encompassing nearly 300 years. The quality of life in this city of over 300,000 inhabitants is high, and the region is booming. Karlsruhe is a city that can be referred to as a "knowledge factory with "savoir vivre".
The 2018 Smarter Conference will offer a comprehensive picture of the smart specialisation policy experience, including an evaluation of its early results, and will highlight recent developments both conceptually and empirically. Attention will be given to implementation challenges and ways to address them, as well as to methodologies for impact assessment. In addition, the conference will explore how smart specialisation engages with global value chains and production networks, and how firms, regions and cities can benefit from relationships across the borders.
The European Exposure Factors (ExpoFacts) Sourcebook is a collection of statistics and references. It is primarily aimed at being a tool for environmental exposure analysis and risk assessment but it can also serve as a data source for administration, NGO's and anyone interested in European statistics.
The ExpoFacts Sourcebook has three parts: a database, a reference guide, and a document library. All of these are free to use, and available through this site.
