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 hosts a training course on Genomics in support of fisheries and aquaculture management under the auspices of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) from 26 to 28 June 2018, in Ispra, Italy.
Major and severe accidents have occurred three times in nuclear power plants (NPPs), at Three Mile Island (USA, 1979), Chernobyl (former USSR, 1986) and Fukushima (Japan, 2011).
The JRC contributed to an Italian study in profiling food waste types to better understand what specific measures should be taken for food waste reduction.
Food waste goes well beyond the visible disposing of leftovers or food not consumed because of expired consume by dates for example.
This handbook elaborates, in a clear and concise manner, how regional and city authorities may support their work by using existing JRC knowledge, information and tools.
It is inspired by the longstanding, fruitful cooperation between the Directorates-General Joint Research Centre, Regional and Urban Policy as well as other departments of the European Commission, plus the Committee of the Regions and local and regional authorities in European Union Member States.
