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.
One in every 10 adults (16-74 years) in several EU countries has used online platforms at least once to provide labour services.
While for the majority it remains only a sporadic source of secondary income, 2% of the adult population works more than 20 hours a week or earns at least half of their income via online labour platforms.
On 22 June 2018, on the occasion of the first ever European Cultural Heritage Summit, the European Commission has released a set of interactive maps which will help to raise awareness of cultural heritage in Europe.
The Story Maps, developed by the JRC, inform in an easily accessible way about several initiatives across Europe linked to cultural heritage.
