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 Joint Research Centre (JRC) Visitors' Centre is located at JRC Ispra, Italy and is open daily, Monday to Friday.
It offers lots of interactive exhibits which explain the many areas of JRC research. Our detailed floor map helps you to see what there is to explore at the Visitors' Centre.
