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.

He has been with the JRC since 2002, and has led a number of projects on national and regional research and innovation policies and foresight.
Prior to joining the JRC he was a Research Fellow at the University of Manchester, UK, where he worked on various aspects of the economics of technological change and science and technology policy. In 1988, he was awarded a PhD in the economics of technological change from the University of Manchester. He has also held visiting research fellowships in Japan and France.
