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 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.
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.
ENSEMBLE is a web-based platform for the inter-comparison and evaluation of atmospheric chemistry transport and dispersion models.
The Environmental Marine Information System (EMIS) has been developed to facilitate access to scientific and technical environmental products and relies on biological and physical variables generated from both hydrodynamic models and satellite remote sensing. A number of these variables and advanced products are available to the scientific and managerial community through a geographic information system (GIS) tool, enabling the user to create maps and conduct basic regional assessments.
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.
The EU-Aid Explorer is a unique web tool that provides easy access to clear, complete and accurate data on development and humanitarian aid around the world. Maps and graphs are used to visualize which donor is active where, which sectors and countries receive how much assistance and how funding changes over time.
EU-Forest is a high-resolution tree occurrence dataset for Europe.
The DB-ALM is a service that provides information on development and applications of advanced and alternative methods to animal experimentation in the field of biomedical sciences and toxicology for research or regulatory purposes.
