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.
A meeting of the Laboratories held in December 2001 in Ispra showed that there was strong agreement on the setting up of a formal network, with the objectives
The creation of the network was formally agreed by the participating institutions a year later, in 2002.
Meanwhile the AQUILA Network is a well established Network involved in the implementation of existing EU air policy and advising on new developments.
Meetings are dedicated to special topics such as particles measurement, accreditation or quality assurance, but also provide regular
opportunities to update the participants on new technical, scientific and legislative developments in the field of air quality.
