Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


A general plan for the reform of the JRC proposed by the Commission, constituting a lasting solution to the problems which in the past have beset it, depends on four modes of operation:- execution of specific research programmes which contribute to the Framework Programme for Community research - performance of work in technical and scientific support to other Commission services - contracting of research or service actions to outside clients who pay for them - exploratory research actions. The result is that the Commission remains the most important customer for JRC work, without implying an exclusive dependence on the JRC for community research activities. With this assumption the JRC must look for other customers outside the Commission. It will make available against remuneration to other national and industrial organisations within the Member States, its specialised scientific potential, characterised by neutrality and independence, in the shape of research contracts, services, cooperation projects, industrial groups and associations of research institutes.
