EC Joint Research Centre
As the European Commission's science and knowledge service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) supports EU policies with independent scientific evidence throughout the whole policy cycle.
JRC creates, manages and makes sense of knowledge and develop innovative tools and make them available to policy makers. JRC collaborates with over a thousand organisations worldwide whose scientists have access to many JRC facilities through various collaboration agreements.
EPIC Center of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control
The Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control (EPIC CoE) was established with the objective to be a leading, internationally acknowledged and sustainable focus point in its field, representing excellence in research, development and innovation related to Cyber-Physical Production (CPP). The mission of EPIC CoE is to accelerate innovation, realize industrial solutions, train new generations of highly qualified professionals and support the development of a sustainable and competitive European manufacturing ecosystem.
European Conference of Transport Research Institutes
The European Conference of Transport Research Institutes (ECTRI) is an international non-profit association founded by national transport research institutes and universities. It is the first attempt to unite the forces of the foremost multimodal transport research centres across Europe and to thereby promote the excellence of European transport research.
Today, it includes 28 major transport research institutes or universities from 19 European countries. Together, they account for more than 4,000 European scientific and research staff in the field of transport.
European Platform for Transport Sciences
The European Platform of Transport Sciences (EPTS) is an independent association of organizations working in the field of transport sciences. The purpose of the EPTS is to enhance dialogue between politicians, policymakers, scientists and researchers in the field of European transport. EPTS accomplishes this by organising scientific events, encouraging the exchange of results, opinions, and experiences, mounting joint PR efforts, promoting scientific research and continuing education and cooperating with other scientific institutions.
International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) Scientific Committees
The International Federation of Automatic Control is a multinational federation of National Member Organizations, each one representing the engineering and scientific societies concerned with automatic control in its own country.
The purpose of the Federation is to promote the science and technology of control in the broadest sense in all systems, whether, for example, engineering, physical, biological, social or economic, in both theory and application. IFAC is also concerned with the impact of control technology on society.
