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 ELINDER specific course on "Decommissioning Planning and Cost Assessment" focusses on the know-how for preparing decommissioning activities: planning and cost assessment.
The course is organised by the Slovak University of Technology (STUBA).
The course will be supported with lectures from experienced Slovak companies as well as international organisations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The registration fee is € 1750 (VAT incl.).
In a world flooded with information making sense of and communicating knowledge, or evidence, is highly challenging.
Evidence-informed policymaking needs advocates and skilled practitioners.
The summer school aims to help researchers to have more impact and policymakers to use evidence for policy solutions.
The workshop will focus on the tools and approaches to inform the policymaking process through evidence.
The ten-day course will cover all aspects of satellite navigation, including
The main emphasis of the course will be the development of a group business project, building on an innovative idea to take in the planning of the product or service, its technical realisation and finally its marketing to customers.
The ELINDER 'Decommissioning Summer School' is addressed to undergraduate students in the area of engineering, science and technology.
The course will give in 5 days an overview of the important issues related to nuclear decommissioning and waste management.
The course includes visits of the nuclear installations from JRC-Ispra and practical illustrative cases studies.
The participation is free of charge, interested students should complete the application form and will be selected on this basis.
The workshop is organised by the European Commission (DG JRC) in collaboration with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture of Zagreb University, the Centre for Technology Transfer Ltd. and the Croatian Agency for SMEs, Innovation and Investments (HAMAG-BICRO).
The European Commission’s Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography (KCMD) and the IOM's Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) will launch the Big Data for Migration Alliance (BD4M) to advance discussions on how to harness the potential of big data sources for the analysis of migration and its relevance for policymaking, while ensuring the ethical use of data and the protection of individuals’ privacy.
