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 European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies. It seeks to improve new technologies and bring down costs by coordinating national research efforts and helping to finance projects. Annual SET-plan conferences have been organised in, and together with, EU Council Presidency countries since 2008, offering a chance for decision-makers, stakeholders and researchers to meet and assess the SET-Plan's progress.
