Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Two kinds of objectives are pursued at the JRC in direct support of the various General Directorates of the Commission: Technical Evaluations where system analysis techniques are mainly employed and Technical Assistance where laboratory measurements, technical expertises and management of projects are provided. Explicit motivation for this programme is providing support to the Commission services in various fields where the JRC has competence. By doing this, the JRC contributes with its technical and scientific work to a better accomplishment of the tasks of the Commission services in a number of sectoral policies. The project Technical Evaluations corresponds to two types of work: general system studies, computer modelling and technical assessments. The activities in this project were mainly concentrated on problems concerning the energy sector, which requires thorough analysis in preparation of any decision making. In particular, the modelling of the energy system and the contributions of nuclear energy were dealt with. Energy saving problems were also analyzed. The second project of the programme, Technical Assistance, consisted of specific experimental work on, among others, fertilizers, dairy products, wine, trace metals in biological fluids and on the aquatic environment. The scope of it is to develop or to select reliable analytical determination methods and to let them be accepted as standard method on a large international scale.
