JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE
The European Commission's in-house science service
This leaflet provides an overview of the work of the Joint Research Centre, the European Commission’s in-house science service, in the area of climate action.
Improved weather conditions for winter crops
Temperatures from the end of October until mid-November were well above average across most of Europe, and the highest in our records (since 1975) for the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic countries.
As the Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to provide EU policies with independent, evidence-based scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle. Working in close cooperation with policy Directorates-General, the JRC addresses key societal challenges while stimulating innovation through developing new methods, tools and standards, and sharing its know-how with the Member States, the scientific community and international partners.
