Citizens, consumers, patients, doctors, control authorities, travellers and industry need to be able to rely on sound and comparable measurements to take the right decisions.
The JRC developed the new certified reference material ERM-BB185; elements in bovine liver. Certified values are given for a selection of elements that allow control laboratories precise analytical measurements ensuring food safety.
The Global Multi-country model (GM) has been designed in 2014 to complement the model QUEST to support the EC in its macroeconomic surveillance, monitoring and forecasting tasks. It is regularly used to contribute to the Spring and Autumn releases of the European Economic Forecasts by providing model-based drivers identification of forecast of GDP.
GAP is used by the EC and the Member States to calculate the output gap, which is the key variable in the monitoring of fiscal deficits in the EU in application of the Stability and Growth Pact.
QUEST is a macroeconomic model to analyse and understand the state of the EU economy. It is developed by DG ECFIN with support from the JRC. The current version QUEST III is applied since 2007.
