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.
In a circular economy, resources such as energy and materials are transformed and reused in a sustainable manner. This leaflet outlines examples of JRC's scientific and technical support to EU policies related to efficient use of resources and environment protection. (June 2014)
