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 Global Crisis Atlas is a service of the Commission that provides a catalogue of digital maps produced by its in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre, to meet the needs of the European External Action service (EEAS) and the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI). The service is financed by the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace.
The Global Crisis Atlas is intended to increase the awareness of geographic and crisis related issues, to provide the information basis to support decision making in potential crisis situations and in planning projects.
