The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is a Directorate-General (DG) of the European Commission dedicated to the service of the European Union. Its role is to support the EU policy making process providing an independent scientific and technical advice to the Commission, the European Parliament, Council and Member States, with the objective of helping to create a safer, cleaner, healthier and more competitive Europe.
The JRC coordinates and contributes to many community networks, linking universities and national institutes of the Member States. Its laboratories carry out studies and research on behalf of the European Institutions. The JRC is also involved in projects with various partners in the Member States and it is in contact with extra-European and world organisations in the scientific and regulatory fields.
This involves a wide range of activities: from setting standardised norms for healthcare products to the methods for the identification of illicit traffic of nuclear materials; from the improvement of anti-seismic building techniques to the identification of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in foods; from the quality control and sustainability of water resources to satellite monitoring of land and deforestation.
