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 has launched a survey to monitor the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the EU’s agricultural-food supply chain - from farm to fork.
The survey targets companies and businesses (including small enterprises and farmers) active in the production, distribution, processing, wholesale or retail stages of the agri-food supply chain.
The aim is to investigate the resilience, constraints and responses of operators to COVID-19, all along the chain.
The JRC study "Prospective Insights in ICT R&D" (PREDICT) focuses on analysing the supply of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and Research and Development (R&D) in ICT in Europe, with comparison to major competitors worldwide. ICTs are indeed the technologies underpinning the digital economy.
