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.
In the September 2017 Joint Communication "Resilience, Deterrence, and Defence: Building strong cybersecurity for the EU", the European Commission announced the intention to support the creation of a network of cybersecurity competence centres, with a European Cybersecurity Competence Centre at its heart, to stimulate the development and deployment of technology in cybersecurity.
The first step of this ambitious initiative is the clear definition of the cybersecurity context, its domains of application, research, and knowledge.
The KCMD has actively engaged in developing the evidence-base on migrant integration through a range of collaborations with partner organisations.
The fifth African Union - European Union (AU-EU) summit took place on 29-30 November 2017 in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire.
Ahead of the Summit, KCMD and the Migration Policy Centre (European University Institute, Florence) organised a High-Level Event on the dynamics of migration and mobility in Africa.
In collaboration with the International Organization for Migration’s Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC), in 2018 the KCMD launched a Big Data for Migration Alliance (BD4M) to address the challenges of having and exploiting migration data and to increase investments into data innovation in the field of migration.
This built on an expert workshop co-organized by the KCMD and GMDAC at the Joint Research Centre on 30 November 2017.
The KCMD has created a Dynamic Data Hub, giving users direct access to datasets related to migration and demography. It currently provides data on arrivals, flows, stocks, socio-economics, demography, international displacement, children in migration and population projections.
Since June 2016, the JRC and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) have been partners in the Centre of Expertise on Population and Migration (CEPAM). This collaboration aims to assess the implications of different migration scenarios on future population change in Europe.
Water, energy, food security and health remain in the scientific and policy making spotlight in Africa.
The Evidence Informed Policy Making (EIPM) seminar will train participants to use evidence for policy making by focusing on challenges and interrelations of those fields.
