We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Commission unveiled a new plan this week, laying out paths to EU membership for the Western Balkans countries.
Through democratic, political, economic and societal improvements, the Western Balkan partners have a real and credible prospect of joining the EU in the coming years.
The JRC has published a report on the minimum quality requirements for the use of treated waste water for agricultural purposes.
This science for policy report will be used as basis for defining EU legislation on the reuse of water in agriculture.
