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 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.
The EURDEP (EUropean Radiological Data Exchange Platform) Public Map displays the radiological monitoring data from most European countries in nearly real-time. EURDEP is both a standard data-format for radiological data and a network for the exchange of automatic monitoring data.
MEDISYS is a media monitoring system providing event-based surveillance to rapidly identify potential public health threats using information from media reports. The system displays only those articles with interest to public health (e. g. diseases, plant pests, psychoactive substances), analyses news reports and warns users with automatically generated alerts.
ODIN is the JRC's Online Data & Information Network. It contains document management sites and other information related to European research in the area of nuclear and conventional energy.
ODIN provides data management services to the European energy research community. ODIN also hosts the Materials DataBase (MatDB) and the Hydrogen Incident and Accident Database (HIAD) engineering database applications, the document database (DoMa) and other information related to European research in the domain of nuclear and conventional energy.
The general aim of the REM action is to support the European Commission in collecting, validating and reporting information on the radiological situation of Europe's environment, in view of providing qualified information to policy makers and the public, as well as to the scientific community for further research. To obtain these objectives REM developes and maintains information exchange systems for monitoring routine (REMdatabase) situations and in the event aof radiological/nuclear accident (ECURIE, EURDEP, ENSEMBLE).
The STRESA (Storage of Thermal REactor Safety Analysis Data) information system was developed by the JRC in Ispra in the year 2000 to disseminate documents and experimental data from large in-house JRC scientific projects on severe accidents. Since then, it has been extensively used as repository of experimental data. Now, the Knowledge for Nuclear Safety, Security and Safeguards unit of the JRC is administrating and maintaining a new version of the STRESA information system assuring the secure use of its severe accident experimental data and calculations.
The TIPINS information system is a web-tool that contains a database of Nuclear Safety contracts financed by the European Union and implemented by DEVCO and ELARG. The main purpose of this tool is to provide an overview of policy implementation through graphs and statistics based in real time data as well as to facilitate the technical assessment of contract outputs and related lessons learned.
The TRANSURANUS fuel performance code is a key instrument for the thermal, mechanical and neutron-physical analysis of a cylindrical fuel rod in nuclear reactors. Therefore, it combines the interacting phenomena by taking into account all relevant thermal, mechanical and isotopic properties of nuclear fuel – most of them changing during reactor operation or long-term storage. The code is applied for design as well as for licensing of nuclear fuel – by various research centres, universities, nuclear safety authorities and industrial partners across Europe.
