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.
The a4a method facilitates the estimation of the current fish stocks and the prediction of their future status under alternative scenarios.
This tool allows exploring scientific fishery data and economic indicators on the aquaculture fish processing and fishing sectors.
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.
With the rising cost of fuel, energy efficiency in fisheries has become a key issue for the sector's profitability, and the European Commission pledged to facilitate the exchange of good ideas and best practice. This website contains reference information and studies, scientific literature, relevant past and future events (e.g.
The freely accessible Europe Media Monitor (EMM) is a fully automatic system that analyses both traditional and social media. It gathers and aggregates about 300,000 news articles per day from news portals world-wide in up to 70 languages.
Information on Farm Advisory Systems set up by Member States
The JRC collects and maintains fisheries and aquaculture data transmitted by EU Member States under the remit of the Data Collection Framework (DCF) regulation. The datasets are assessed by teams of independent experts participating in working groups convened by the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) whose scientific advice is used to inform the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) decision making process.
