Networks & bureaus

To meet its objectives and deliver high-quality scientific support and results, the JRC has developed lasting partnerships with external entities sharing a common interest in specific research areas. This collaboration is essential for the JRC's work on harmonisation and validation of methods and measurements, establishing common standards, and providing scientific and technical support for the implementation of European legislation.

JRC's networking activities also respond to European policy makers' and EU Member States' increasing demands to establish common scientific reference systems. The JRC collaborates with hundreds of partner organisations in scientific networks worldwide, covering a broad range of fields from climate change and air quality to environmental monitoring of radioactivity and food contact materials.

  3. JRC is co-charing together with Emisia (http://www.emisia.com) and the I.S.P.R.A. (http://www.isprambiente.gov.it/it) the Expert Panel on Transport of the Task Force on Emission Inventories and Projections (TFEIP). The TFEIP operates under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution. It supports Parties in the reporting of official air pollutant emissions and projections data to the Convention.
