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 CH-OEF information system is a web-tool aimed to collect and analyse information on operating events occurred at Nuclear Power Plants, as well as to gather and file the feedbacks to these operating events in a systematic way. The main purpose of this tool is to further develop communication, cooperation and sharing of operating experience and event reporting amongst the European Nuclear Regulatory Authorities participating in the ClearingHouse network.

90% of the world's cargo is transported in maritime containers, but only 2% is physically inspected by customs authorities, opening the possibility for illicit activities. Today, it is widely believed that the only viable way to control containerized cargo is through information-based risk analysis. In this way, it becomes possible to target high-risk consignments and proceed with costly physical checks, only where needed.

The JRC manages the Laboratory for Interoperability Certification, which is responsible for carrying out thorough test procedures on the digital tachograph and for issuing one of the three certifications needed for it to enter the market. The Digital Tachograph website is the reference point for equipment producers, authorities and drivers who use it as an instant source of information on the latest equipment and model certifications, public certificates (ERCA keys), ongoing field tests and new country codes.

The European Marine Casualty Information Platform (EMCIP) provides the means to store data and information related to marine casualties involving all types of ships and occupational accidents. It also enables the production of statistics and analysis of the technical, human, environmental and organisational factors involved in accidents at sea.

The European Railway Accident Information Links (ERAIL) database ensures that the information relevant to the safety of the railways in the EU Member States is accessible and transparent to all interested parties and stakeholders in the railway domain. The JRC supports the European Railway Agency (ERA) in its task of collecting and proving public access to investigation reports and a biennial report on safety performance, based on Common Safety Indicators (CSIs), national reports on safety and accidents and its own information.

Wind farms locations across Europe as reported in the Wind Power database.
©EU, 2016

The EMHIRES (wind) database is a set of data that models how much energy the current installed wind farms in Europe have produced in every hour during the last 30 years.

The methodology can be used to predict how much wind energy potential there could be at specific geographical locations throughout the EU allowing better planning and integration of renewable energy sources into the future energy grid.
