A close-up on European Research

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) underpins European policymaking through its multi-disciplinary research in seven Institutes located in five Member States.

The Open Doors Day at the JRC in Ispra, the third biggest site of the European Commission hosting two thirds of the JRC's staff, is the ideal opportunity to discover this hidden scientific gem. All Institutes will showcase their work in important areas ranging from food safety, chemical products and health, environment and sustainability, energy and transport to public security – all helping to make Europe environmentally friendly, safe and competitive.

Unique laboratories, practical demonstrations, exhibitions and conferences and special attractions for young visitors will await visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A guided tour for media will be organised.
