Europe’s Joint Research Centre, although improving, must think bigger

  
Nature, Vol. 550, No. 7674. (3 October 2017), pp. 8-8, https://doi.org/10.1038/550008a

Abstract

External report criticizes lack of exploratory research. [Excerpt] The European Union’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) uses the label EU Science Hub now. Whether the rebranding will increase its profile is one question. What science gets done inside this hub is another. In response to that query, there is some positive news. It is doing what it should be, and doing it well: collecting scientific and technical evidence in support of EU policies. That’s according to the report of an external evaluation released ...

 

The European Fire Database: technical specifications and data submission

  
Vol. 26546 (2014), https://doi.org/10.2788/2175

Abstract

The European Fire Database is an important component of the European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS), the EC focal point of information on forest fires established by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Directorate General for Environment to provide up to date and harmonized information on forest fires in Europe. As of 2014 EFFIS is part of the Forest Information System for Europe (FISE), following the new EU Forest Strategy adopted in 2013. The Fire Database is the largest repository ...

 

Post-normal institutional identities: quality assurance, reflexivity and ethos of care

  

Abstract

[Highlights] [::] Given the current crises of legitimacy and quality in mainstream science, institutions that produce and govern science and those that provide scientific advice to policy need to change their modus operandis; we advocate for an ethos of care. [::] Post-normal science and other frameworks of scientific knowledge production may inspire trustfulness in institutions that provide scientific advice to policy. [::] In Europe, the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission has the necessary scaffolding to advise policy in view of public interest, ...

Watchdogs of the European system

  
Science, Vol. 348, No. 6238. (29 May 2015), pp. 947-947, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.aac6092

Abstract

Henry Kissinger, as U.S Secretary of State, is famously said to have asked: “If I want to call Europe, who do I call?” Until recently, the scientific community thought it had an answer to this question: the chief scientific adviser (CSA) to the president of the European Commission (EC). Two weeks ago, that changed. [Excerpt] President Juncker insisted that he was still committed to scientific advice and asked Carlos Moedas, the Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, to lead a review of ...

 

Supporting EFSA assessment of the EU environmental suitability for exotic forestry pests: final report

  
EFSA Supporting Publications, Vol. 11, No. 3. (19 March 2014), 434E, https://doi.org/10.2903/sp.efsa.2014.EN-434

Abstract

An updated series of distribution maps of more than 50 taxa, mainly of forest tree species, is presented along with the description of involved materials, inventory data and ancillary datasets, data-processing and modelling methods. Different methodologies are discussed and corresponding specific maps are presented for supporting the assessment on emerging plant pest risks. Updated maps of taxa habitat suitability are also presented. Maps, material and methods for supporting the risk assessment on Phytophthora ramorum for the European territory and for supporting ...

Soil erosion: a main threats to the soils in Europe

  
In Threats to Soil Quality in Europe, No. EUR 23438 EN. (2008), pp. 37-45

Abstract

Soil erosion is complex process with many influencing factors. In recent years the physical interpretation of the various factors and processes has intensified with the design and implementation of physically based models as PESERA (Pan-European Soil Erosion Risk Assessment) and WEPP (Water Erosion Prediction Project). Some major problems remaining are the level of detail of the input data for such models; the application of the model for large areas e.g. continental level; and the validation of the data output. Another fundamentally important aspect is the “static” output ...

 

Soil erosion risk assessment in the alpine area according to the IPCC scenarios

  
In Threats to Soil Quality in Europe, No. EUR 23438 EN. (2008), pp. 47-58

Abstract

The general aim of research was an estimation of actual erosion over the whole alpine space and a spatial analysis of soil erosion trends in different IPCC(Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) scenarios. The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) was applied to the whole alpine space. It allowed to produce, with a spatial resolution of 100 m, the map of actual soil erosion and two further maps defining soil erosion rates in IPCC A2 and B2 scenarios. This analysis was carried out by means of the dataset ...

Indicators for mapping ecosystem services: a review

  
No. EUR 25456. (2012), https://doi.org/10.2788/41823

Abstract

Ecosystem services are the benefits that humans derive from ecosystems, such as food provisioning, water regulating and provisioning, soil productivity, and use of natural areas for recreation. The current challenge is to mainstream ecosystem services into policies and practices in order to ensure the continuous provision of these benefits to humans. The European Union has adopted an EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2020 in which the target of safeguarding ecosystem services is explicitly included. One crucial step to account for ecosystem services ...

Open source software guidelines - Final version

  
(September 2010)

Abstract

[Excerpt: Introduction] The following guidelines are meant to help developers managing Open Source Software (“OSS”) in the JRC development projects. Open Source Software1 has progressively become a more and more prominent tendency in the IT sector. Its use inside the JRC is already widespread and numerous initiatives of the EU institutions indicate their growing interest for OSS, e.g. the use of OSS components in the IT infrastructure. Moreover, an Open Source license was specifically drafted at the initiative of the European Commission. This ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
