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.
Below you can find a selection of our general information publications.
In addition, the JRC publishes several hundreds of scientific publications every year. To find the JRC publications in a certain research area, please use the Search publications page.
Most scientific publications are freely available thanks to the European Commission's open access policy.
When available, you can order hardcopies through the EU Bookshop.
This document provides for each EU and EFTA country a fact sheet containing examples of policy initiatives either explicitly or implicitly informed by behavioural insights as well as the institutional developments regarding the application of behavioural insights to policy. These country-specific overviews complement the "Behavioural Insights Applied to Policy – European Report 2016". They are meant to be updated on a regular basis by taking into account new behavioural policies and institutional developments.
