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.
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.

The SCK•CEN organises an ELINDER G1Training Course on "Decommissioning of Nuclear Installations".The main objective of the training course is to provide the participants with the basic requirements regarding the management of a decommissioning project and to share experience from ongoing decommissioning projects.
The workshop is organised by the Joint Research Centre, the European Commission's science and knowledge service, in collaboration with the Technology Park Ljubljana Ltd.
The event aims to provide policy makers and innovation practitioners with knowledge and training/practical insights in setting up successful start-up platforms with support programmes strengthening regional/national innovation ecosystems.
In this course, participants receive a general introduction to
The course will be open to a maximum of 30 qualified and selected participants.
The reduction of CO2 emissions from road transport is a political objective of the European Union.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) has been supporting the European Commission in the conception, formulation and implementation of relevant EU policies.
The Sustainable Transport Unit of the JRC has organised a dedicated two-day workshop to introduce participants from enlargement and integration (E&I) countries to the two main tools developed by the JRC in the support of policies in the field: VECTO and CO2MPAS.
L'Institut National de Sciences et Techniques Nucléaires (INSTN) organise un cours ELINDER G3 sur l'"Initiation au démantèlement des installations nucléaires". Cette formation a pour objectif de décrire le processus général du démantèlement et les principaux aspects de la réglementation. Et notamment:
• Identifier les différentes techniques, procédés et méthodologies mis en œuvre.
• Se situer dans les exigences et les contraintes en matière de sûreté, sécurité, environnement et radioprotection.
The JRC Week on Composite Indicators and Scoreboards is an annual five-day event.
Local and international policy and decision makers, academics, think tanks, and practitioners in a wide range of socio-economic fields learn from best practices and showcase their capacity to inform policies through the use of indicator systems that summarise multidimensional concepts from social rights and social trust to innovation and competitiveness.
The JRC-managed Smart Specialisation Platform is organising a workshop on Monitoring for Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) built on the peer-review methodology. It is organised in co-operation with MOSTA (Research and Higher Education Monitoring and Analysis Centre).
This workshop will showcase the main developments of various non-EU countries in the Americas, Asia, Oceania and Africa in the implementation and/or adaptation of Smart Specialisation approach.
