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.
Improving chemical and ionising radiation metrology in Turkey.
The three-year project (01/10/2009 – 30/09/2012) funded by the European Union under the instrument for pre-accession assistance (IPA) aimed to enhance the measurement capacity for chemical and ionising radiation metrology in Turkey. An enhanced measurement infrastructure in Turkey will afford its citizens an increased quality of life in areas such as environment, health, food safety and consumer protection. The three main beneficiary institutes involved were TÜBİTAK UME, TAEK-SANAEM and TAEK-ÇNAEM. Other beneficiaries included universities, control laboratories and other research institutes.
The project's objectives were mainly achieved by means of two types of training (long term and short term). Long term training involved hosting 16 Turkish scientists at JRC-IRMM and two Turkish scientists at PTB, Germany. Short term training involved 36 scientific workshops, 20 study visits, five technical advice visits, 14 seminar lectures, three sessions in conferences, one conference and ten conference participations.
For each workshop carried out there is a descriptive leaflet and agenda which can be downloaded via the agenda archive below.
