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 JRC took the lead in developing the International Standard IEC 63047 which specifies a data format for list-mode digital data acquisition used in radiation detection and measurement. The standard has been developed in support of DG HOME in the frame of standardisation mandate M/487 and was published on 11 October 2018.
Linking landscape connectivity and the spread of tick-borne Lyme disease
A recent article led by the University of Toronto and co-authored by the JRC examines how wildlife and landscape characteristics interact to influence the spread of Lyme disease.
A JRC article published in Scientific Reports today assesses the quality of wheat forecasts during years with extremely low or high yields, and calls for improvements based on near real-time data fusion.
