JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE
The European Commission's science and knowledge service
The JRC's AMALIA laboratory carries out research on different materials in various aqueous environments under varying conditions, testing for general corrosion and stress corrosion cracking (SCC).
The underground laboratory HADES carries out research on small amounts of radioactive substances.
The JRC's High Flux Reactor carries out research in the area of nuclear and reactor safety.
The JRC's radionuclide metrology laboratories carry out research on measurements of neutron-induced reactions and cross-section standards, and absolute measurements of radiation.
The JRC produces and characterises a variety of targets for high-precision measurements of neutron-reaction data at the GELINA and
The JRC's Van de Graaff facility houses six experimental set-ups, and provides a stable neutron field for more than a week without interruption.
As the science and knowledge service of the European Commission, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle.
