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.
Our scientific work supports a whole host of EU policies in a variety of areas from agriculture and food security, to environment and climate change, as well as nuclear safety and security and innovation and growth.
Our research topics give a deeper insight into that support of EU policy, while you can also discover the unique laboratories and facilities where our scientists work.
Our news gives you an insight into our support of EU policy and highlights the scientific research carried out everyday within the European Commission.
You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter for all the latest information directly to your inbox and check out our events for opportunities to participate. Or check out our photos and videos for an instant look at the world of science at the European Commission.

Sharing scientific knowledge across boundaries
Our communities bring together individuals interested in sharing scientific knowledge and experiences and to exchange ideas and learning, with the aim to better serve and inform EU policy and the citizen.
Each community is governed individually and membership requests are dealt with by the moderator. Some areas are restricted.
