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.

  1. The Forum for Air quality Modelling (FAIRMODE) is a joint response action of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC). Its aim is to bring together air quality modellers and users in order to promote and support the harmonised use of models by EU member countries, with emphasis on their application to the European Air Quality Directive.
