JRC Services: A Handbook for national, regional and local authorities on why and how to engage with the European Commission science and knowledge service

Abstract: 
The handbook provides a broad overview of the Joint Research Centre's (JRC) science-for-policy capabilities to help national governments and institutions achieve their goals on a sound evidence basis. Services are presented both in a thematic section covering different policy areas, and in a horizontal section covering more generic offering such as access to data and infrastructure, education and training or certified reference materials. The handbook is primarily directed at government personnel in the EU Member States and Associated Countries to Horizon 2020, but can also be of interest to national and regional science organisations, academics and policy makers.
