EU Science Hub

Scientific tools & databases

The range of work carried out at the JRC includes the

  • compilation of databases
  • development of software and modelling tools

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.

Bioeconomy Knowledge Centre

The Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy (KCB) is a European Commission initiative on better knowledge management for bioeconomy-related policy making.

To strengthen the Commission’s overall response to the opportunities and challenges related to the bioeconomy, the KCB will aim to become a central knowledge hub supporting the work of Commission services and other stakeholders.


EU-Forest is a high-resolution tree occurrence dataset for Europe.


DataM is the Internet complement to JRC scientific output relating to the economics of agriculture.


DataM aims to promote the communication of JRC scientific results in the area of agro-economics through the use of the web and of interactive data visualisations.

DataM also aims to provide access to the raw datasets produced by the JRC's agro-economic research activities, in line with the JRC's open data principles.
