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.
By realising EURATOM Treaty Article 35, JRC-Geel performs regular Proficiency Tests (PTs) of Member State capacity to measure radioactivity in the environment. On January 31, 2018 there will be a follow-up workshop on a PT on measuring radioactivity in maize.
The JRC co-organises the workshop Fiscal Policy and Microsimulation that will take place on 25 January 2018 in Valencia (Spain).
The workshop will combine relevant keynote speakers with contributed papers and will run in parallel to the 25th Meeting on Public Economics, a 2-day general-purpose conference focused on Public Economics (in Spanish).
The 2018 edition of the Macro-Regional Innovation Week will take place in Ispra (IT) from 24 to 26 January 2018, with the focus on Science and Technology knowledge for policy support and on collaboration with the JRC.
The Macro-Regional Innovation Week will promote the opening of the JRC's research infrastructures and laboratories and showcase JRC's technical and scientific competences, in particular in the field of environment, energy, transport and biotechnologies.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) in close collaboration with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology, US Department of Commerce) and Colorado State University is organising the 2nd International Workshop on Modelling of Physical, Economic and Social Systems for Resilience Assessment on 14-16 of December 2017.
The workshop aims to explore how high-level strategic needs and current scientific advances on modelling of physical, economic and social systems are linked in order to support resilience assessment in various dimensions.
The scope of the course is
What is the stability region of a DSGE model? Which structural parameters mainly drive the unique saddle-path solution of DSGE models?
The 2nd International Workshop on the European Atlas of Natural Radiation (IWEANR 2017) will be held in the town of Verbania, Italy, from Monday 6 November at 14:00 to Thursday 9 November at 16:00. The main aim of the workshop is to present the status and discuss progress of the European Atlas of Natural Radiation.
This school is intended to provide an overview to the measurement and analysis techniques associated with neutron induced reactions alongside the nuclear theory governing these reactions.
The training (06-08 Nov) will offer the lessons learnt from the JRC assessments on more than 100 well-known composite indicators and scoreboards.
The training is open to all (researchers, policy analysts) with an interest in scoreboards, composite indicators and multi-criteria analysis. No registration fees.
To address the challenges faced by the European railway industry with a focus on passenger experience, innovation and security, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), together with the European Standardisation Organisations CEN and CENELEC organise a workshop on “Railways of the future".
The output of the event will allow to adjust standardization priorities and implementation roadmaps.
