The JRC Annual Report 2008, published today, provides an overview of the activities, accomplishments and resources related to the JRC’s work carried out in 2008.
The year 2008 was marked in particular by the results of the independent evaluation of the JRC's activities under FP6 made by Sir David King, former UK Chief Scientific Adviser, and 14 experts from different disciplines.
In this year’s Annual Report, selected examples of the JRC’s major achievements are presented under the title ‘Supporting EU policies’. Highlights from the seven Institutes are also included, as well as the JRC’s contribution to the enlargement and integration of new Member States, technology transfer and intellectual property. A section of the report has also been dedicated to the Excellence Awards of the JRC’s scientists and their innovative results in 2008.
