Enlargement & integration action

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) provides scientific and technical support to countries on the road towards EU membership, New Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. It supports the transfer of the EU legal framework (acquis communautaire) to national legislation and facilitates scientific and technical exchange.

Activities (workshops, training courses and conferences)

In the frame of the Enlargement and Integration Action the JRC offers specialised workshops, conferences and advanced training courses within its areas of competence. The workshops are set up to allow competent organisations in the new Member State, Candidate Countries, Potential Candidate Countries, Framework Programme Associated Countries, and on an ad-hoc basis European Neighbourhood Policy Partner Countries and Russia to study the scientific and technical methods and techniques underpinning EU policy implementation. They also provide an opportunity for EU organisations to learn about the methods currently used in those countries and for both parties to discuss how the EU legislation should be implemented in the future.
