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, together with the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, University of Washington (US), Bangor University (UK) and DTU Aqua (DK), gives a training course on genetics in support of fisheries and aquaculture management, which is based on theory, application and strategy.
