JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE
The European Commission's science and knowledge service
Report on the activities, accomplishments and resources related to the JRC’s work carried out in 2015. An overview is given of the scientific achievements and activities.
The document provides a detailed overview of a five session conference organised and hosted by the JRC in May 2012. The discussions sought to address where scientific support and new standards are needed in the key sectors of eco-industries: water resources, air quality, waste management, renewable energies and energy efficiency.
JRC's scientific and technical support to policy-making is directly relevant to eco-industries. This industry sector focuses on measuring, preventing, limiting or correcting environmental damage to water, air, soil and ecosystems, and works with renewable energy, energy efficiency and waste. (May 2012)
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.
