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.
The European Commission has adopted the JRC’s Work Programme for 2017-2018, running under Horizon 2020, the current EU Framework Programme for funding research and innovation up to 2020. The key orientations of the JRC work programme, structured in accordance with the political priorities of the Commission, reflect the work the JRC will carry out.
The Stairway to Excellence Project now supports regions and stakeholders from all EU member states, enabling them to use synergies and make the most of the European Structural and Investment Funds and Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation programme.
On 28 February 2017, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission's science and knowledge service, and the Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science and Sport signed a Memorandum of Understanding to boost cooperation and scientific excellence.
The Memorandum opens new avenues for scientific exchange and synergies in the fields of energy, transport, public health, security, climate change, digital transformation, and biotechnology, among others.
