Citizen science is the non-professional involvement of volunteers in the scientific process, whether in the data collection phase or in other phases of the research.

It can be a powerful tool for environmental management that has the potential to inform an increasingly complex environmental policy landscape and to meet the growing demands from society for more participatory decision-making.

The researchers collected samples of manure, soil, groundwater and surface water to check the presence of 488 chemicals.

JRC scientists have started investigating how chemical substances migrate from cattle manure to water. The research aims at minimising contamination risks in the context of circular economy.

JRC scientists have developed and tested a new methodology to investigate the fate of chemical substances, in particular pharmaceuticals as well as other anti-microbial agents, administered to cattle.

The methodology stems from an exploratory research project which addressed the so-called "Circularity of Risks" linked to the reuse of materials and recycling in the circular economy.

Vineyards in Europe have almost triple the average soil copper concentration
Dec 18 2018

A recent JRC article that maps copper (Cu) concentration in European Union topsoils finds that vineyards, olive groves and orchards have the highest concentration levels of all land use categories.

The study concludes and land use and management are the major cause of changes in soil Cu concentrations, and highlights the need for more sustainable, environmentally aware and soil friendly land management practices in order to limit the environmental and health risk associated with high copper concentrations in vineyards.
