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.
JRC has developed and performed ultra low background measurements of radioactivity in undeground laboratories since 1992. What started as an exploratory research projects has grown into a successful infrastructure supporting uncountable JRC projects and external stakeholders. This report seek to give a brief overview and understanding for the many interdisciplinary nuclear science applications that have benefited from JRC's measurements of radioactivity in the underground research facility HADES over the past 20 years.
