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.

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.

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.

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

Purposes

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.
