REPORT - A REVIEW OF THE JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE BY AN INDEPENDENT PANEL

Funded under: FP5-JRC

Abstract

In January 2000 Research Commissioner, Philippe Busquin, established a High Level Panel chaired by Viscount Etienne Davignon. It was invited to review and to make recommendations on the workings of the JRC. This report, available for downloading as a PDF-file, presents its unanimous view.

The panel's recommendations concern the following issues:

- which areas JRC should concentrate its activities on and how they should be organised in terms of staffing and financing
- what are the operational consequences of its mission to support the policy making process of the EU and what is the impact on it s relationship with the European Parliament
- how it can best work with other centres of excellence in the Member States
- desirable changes in the governance structure
- how the JRC can be integrated into the European Research Area
