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.
On 17 May 2018 the European Commission introduced a package of measures addressing transport safety, connected and automated mobility, and clean mobility.
The package includes a proposal for CO2 emissions standards for lorries, seeking to reconcile the ambition of world-leading environmental standards with increasing the competitiveness of the European heavy duty vehicle manufacturing industry to secure jobs and growth.
If population dynamics remain similar to the averages observed between 1960 and 2015, the European Union population could increase to 512 million by 2035 and the population of Sub-Saharan Africa could double to around 2.2 billion by 2060.
New poll shows most Europeans think life is generally fair, but have concerns over justice, political decisions and income inequality.
