As of 28 September, over 250 cities across Europe and neighbouring countries are hosting “Researchers night”, an initiative which has scientists meet citizens to present some of their most exciting work and explain how science can change our lives.
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.
In this section, you can learn more about the JRC's role, how it is structured, its resources and the people that make it work. You'll also find contact details and information about where we are located across the EU.
