Welcome to the Joint Research Centre!

Public debate in Europe is increasingly revolving around complex issues such as food safety, traceability of GMOs, security of energy supply, climate change, environment and health, and nuclear safety. The Joint Research Centre (JRC) supports EU policy makers in the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of policies to tackle such trans-national and global problems. In short, the JRC is a research-based policy support organisation working for the EU policy-maker.
A portal to JRC activities
This website is designed to provide an overview of JRC activities. You will discover a wide range of scientific data here, through the websites of JRC institutes, and via links to other relevant sites. I hope you find it both informative and interesting.
