Welcome To The JCCES Web Site

What is the JCCES?
In 1995, the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and the Institute for the Ecology of Industrial Areas (IETU) signed the “Agreement for Technical Exchange and Cooperation between the Department of Energy of the United States of America and the Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas of the Republic of Poland in the Area of Environmental Restoration and Hazardous Waste Management” to promote international scientific collaboration. The overall objective of this international partnership is to assist DOE in meeting its domestic environmental restoration and waste management goals.

This agreement is managed by the Joint Coordinating Committee for Environmental Systems (JCCES) which meets annually to assess program progress, review and approve proposals, evaluate potential future activities, share experiences, and develop innovative technologies jointly in two areas of environmental management, bioremediation and phytoremediation. JCCES membership consists of specialists from both countries who represent each technical area of cooperation.

Through its collaboration with the Institute for International Cooperative Environmental Research (IICER) at Florida State University, the Department of Energy, Office of Environmental Management is able to access scientific and technical capabilities in Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. The IICER maintains formal institution-to-institution agreements of cooperation that link the IICER to the following institutions in the region:

  • The Institute for the Ecology of Industrial Areas (IETU), Katowice, Poland
  • The Technical University of Budapest (TUB), Budapest, Hungary
  • The Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague, Czech Republic
