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.
Every year, at the beginning of the campaign of control with remote sensing, campaign of CAP direct payment subsidies, MS national administrations, JRC and DG AGRI meet to exchange views and discuss topics linked to: on-the-spot checks, area measurements including GNSS measurement, CwRS sites and sensors deployment.
For present or potential candidates of the EU, the main objective of the workshop will be to assist the competent organisations with the scientific and technical methods and techniques underpinning this specific element of EU CAP implementation in EU, to learn about the methods currently available and discuss its future implementation in their country.
