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 January 20 and 21 (2011), eleven members of the EU Science Journalists Association (EUSJA) visited the JRC's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, located in Seville, for an overview of its research activities focused on the Information Society.
