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 forest pattern viewer, another service provided by EFDAC, displays the level and type of forest presence within Europe. The interactive tool allows the user to navigate through different themes and indicators. EFDAC is a central point for forest information at the European level, and supports relevant EU policies.
