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 range of work carried out at the JRC includes the
On the basis of our open data principles we publish tools and databases with clear descriptions for each entry here on the Science Hub.
The tools and databases are categorised by name and acronym, but can be filtered by research area, keyword and JRC institute responsible for the coordination of the particular entry.
To search specific datasets or collections, the JRC Data Catalogue opens access to our data.
The JRC MARS bulletins offer in a near real time and in an operational context analyses and information on crop growth conditions and yield forecast at EU level and neighbouring countries like the UK, Ukraine, Black Sea area and Maghreb.
The bulletin archive gathers all bulletins published since 1997. The crops covered are wheat, barley, rice, maize, rye, triticale, rapeseed, sunflower, sugar beet, potato and pastures.
Here you will find documentation, articles, events and general information about the Mars Crop Yield Forecasting System (MCYFS).
In compliance with the Commission policy, gridded meteorological data sets, produced by AGRI4CAST, are available to the scientific community.
AirMonTech is an EU FP7 project that compiles information to harmonise current air pollution monitoring techniques and to advise on future monitoring technologies and strategy. It collects existing information on current and future air quality (AQ) monitors.
AnisView is an educational software to visualize the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) using one of the two radiative transfer models RPV and MRPV. AnisView has the following features: Graphic display modes: Geometry: an interactive mode to visualize the user-driven illumination and observation geometry. Single BRF value: BRF as a function of the selected geometry and BRDF model parameters. 2-D plot: a cross-cut or plane along a specified azimuthal direction. 2-D contour plot: circular view of the BRDF field including interactive readout of BRF values.
The a4a method facilitates the estimation of the current fish stocks and the prediction of their future status under alternative scenarios.
The Atmosphere, Biosphere, Climate - Integrated Station (ABC-IS), provides datasets.
AnchovyID aims at providing molecular tools in support of traceability and anchovy product authentication. Traceability and product authentication in the fishing industry sector play an increasingly important role. While traceability through labelling is well established and supported by respective regulations, monitoring and enforcement of this rules is still hampered by the lack of efficient diagnostic tools.
To simulate impacts of climate change to agriculture and to evaluate adaptation strategies, the JRC uses its Bio-physical Model Applications Framework (BioMA). A suite of model components implemented in the modelling framework enable simulations of various crops in agricultural systems under present and future climate change scenarios. Modelling activities of the JRC are being integrated with other bio-physical and economic models in order to allow for an integrated approach to the evaluation of climate change scenarios.
The Blue Hub is the JRC in-house platform to perform research in the fields of maritime surveillance and Maritime Situational Awareness (MSA). The Blue Hub platform integrates vessel positioning data, contextual information and satellite based imagery to track some 160.000 vessels in real-time.
