Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


As in 2001, this report has been structured to provide a simpler, shorter and more accessible presentation of the JRC�s work. A new section dedicated to young JRC scientists� awards replaces specific institute highlights, which can be found in the institutes' own annual reports.

Highlights include the inauguration of a European Network of 45 GMO laboratories and a new Minor Actinide laboratory to formulate safe solutions to nuclear waste, and in effectively using satellite imagery for sustainable agriculture, fisheries, environmental protection and alleviating European crises such as floods and oil spills. Additional highlights cover the further extension of common scientific reference systems to the candidate countries and extending our scientific base and networks to the East in order to enhance nuclear safety and security. On a different level the preparation of the FP6 multi-annual work programme and how it will enhance integration between the seven JRC institutes is reported.
