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 ACP Environmental Observatory brings together a broad range of data and information to support Commission services and stakeholders in the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) Region - http://acpobservatory.jrc.ec.europa.eu
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 Atmosphere, Biosphere, Climate - Integrated Station (ABC-IS), provides datasets.
The Bioeconomy Knowledge Centre (BKC) 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 BKC will aim to become a central knowledge hub supporting the work of Commission services and other stakeholders.
The JRC's Catchment Characterisation and Modelling (CCM) activity provides a database of river networks.
This webpage provides information about the climate change impacts on hydrological resources and cycles; floods, droughts, water resources.
The Community Image Data (CID) portal provides access to satellite remote sensing data.
