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.
Reliable and reproducible characterisation of nanomaterials has become a key challenge to understanding nanomaterial biocompatibility, risk assessment and possible toxicity mechanisms. JRC scientists contributed to the assessment of the reproducibility of two popular nanoparticle characterisation techniques, dynamic light scattering and differential centrifugal sedimentation.
The European Commission has today launched a proposal on how to modernise and simplify the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), one of the core policies of the EU.
