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.
The JRC's research on the impacts of climate change looks at economic impacts of our changing climate and includes the Projection of Economic impacts of climate change in Sectors of the European Union based on bottom-up Analysis (PESETA) project.
Research for improving safety in construction is carried out at the JRC's European Laboratory for Structural Assessment (ELSA).
The economic and policy analysis of patterns and trends in industrial R&D and innovation are the focuses of JRC research in this area.
Under different sustainable production and consumption policy strategies of the EU, the JRC provides crucial support by analysing the economic, social and environmental variables. This support also includes the construction of databases and development of an econometric model for input-output analysis.
The JRC develops tools for automatic analysis of open sources from the internet in order to support users in their need to monitor information, detect threats, follow trends and analyse impact.
The JRC looks into interoperability issues between the electric vehicles and the charging infrastructure, covering hardware and information exchange protocols. Research on e-mobility refers to clean and efficient transport, using electric vehicles, powered either by batteries or by hydrogen fuel cells.
The JRC carries out measurements and simulations of the European global navigation satellite system, Galileo, in order to identify possible interferences with the current systems.
