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 web platform on nanomaterials was a compilation of links to information sources relevant to nanomaterials. It offered a structured access to information from very different sources scattered across the internet. The JRC web platform was released in December 2013 and had been developed by the Commission services, led by the JRC, following calls from the European Parliament and the Council to improve the accessibility of information on the internet regarding nanomaterials. The maintenance of these webpages was discontinued in January 2016. For information pages on nanomaterials, in the 23 EU languages and maintained by the European Union, please visit the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials.
