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 Delta tool is a tool for air quality models benchmarking.
The digital map archive is a collection of interactive on-line maps that can be easily retrieved through a dedicated web platform. The maps included in the archive features real-time data related to natural hazards in partnership with over 20 scientific institutions) and are very important for the analysis that follow disaster events. Currently, the archive is relying on a Map Viewer that allows to visualize and select in an intuitite way the various components. Through the interface it is also possible to interrogate databases on certain geographical constraints (i.e.
DOPA is a biodiversity information system developed by the JRC that functions as a tool for assessing, monitoring and forecasting biodiversity status and trends. It is made up of a set of interoperable web services developed by the JRC, using data from international organisations such as the World Conservation Monitoring Centre of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, among others.
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 ECCAIRS web portal provides a web based environment with which professionals in the aviation safety domain can share information and tools.
The European Coordination Centre for Accident and Incident Reporting Systems (ECCAIRS) provides the European Central Repository for accident and incident reports in aviation.
This tool gives you access to several software packages dedicated to econometric analysis: - PROGRAM GAP: a bivariate model as proposed by K.Kuttner; - PROGRAM DMM: for Bayesian inference in Dynamic Mixture Models; - EEMC: develops sensitivity analysis tools for DYNARE; - BUSY: a software for business cycle analysis; - FLASH: rapid estimates of Quarterly National Account main aggregates; - GLUEWIN: implements the Generalized Likelihood Uncertainty Estimation (GLUE) methodology; - SS-ANOVA-R: estimation of multivariate Smoothing Spline ANOVA models with Recursive algorithms.
To analyse climate change impacts on protected areas, the JRC has developed a web-based tool for assessing potential environmental changes resulting from anthropogenic activities. eHabitat is one of the web services that supports DOPA, providing the information on habitat irreplaceability as well as all the results of JRC modelling activities related to ecological niches and the impact of climate change on protected areas.
The EMCIP web portal provides a web based environment with which professionals in the maritime safety domain can share information and tools.
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.
