Big Data for Science and Policy – The European Commission’s science and knowledge service

@EU_ScienceHub: “#BigData for #Science & #Policy” on 1 & 2 Sept in Ispra (IT). Info & programme:

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 this section, you can learn more about the JRC’s role, how it is structured, its resources and the people that make it work. You’ll also find contact details and information about where we are located across the EU.

Our scientific work supports a whole host of EU policies in a variety of areas from agriculture and food security, to environment and climate change, as well as nuclear safety and security and innovation and growth.

Our research topics give a deeper insight into that support of EU policy, while you can also discover the unique laboratories and facilities where our scientists work.

As the European Commission’s knowledge and science service, the JRC plays a central role in creating, managing and making sense of collective scientific knowledge for better EU policies.

As a multinational and multicultural research centre, we collaborate with over a thousand partners worldwide.

You can read more about our collaboration with other organisations and scientific networks, look for cooperation opportunities and find the latest job opportunities on offer.

Our news gives you an insight into our support of EU policy and highlights the scientific research carried out everyday within the European Commission.

You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter for all the latest information directly to your inbox and check out our events for opportunities to participate. Or check out our photos and videos for an instant look at the world of science at the European Commission.

EU Policy Lab: Future of Industry Future of Industry: supporting the community of participants in the JRC’s Future of Industry project

Our communities bring together individuals interested in sharing scientific knowledge and experiences and to exchange ideas and learning, with the aim to better serve and inform EU policy and the citizen.

Each community is governed individually and membership requests are dealt with by the moderator. Some areas are restricted.

The 2016 annual meeting of the JRC’s community of practice on Big Data will focus on Big Data for Science and Policy.

The two-day event will explore the opportunities that Big Data provides for science and policy making and identify have it can be used to improve science-based policy support.
