The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has recently announced a new secondment programme for researchers from industry or other research institutes to work in the JRC, for a suitable period of time, in a specific scientific research area. The aim of this programme is to encourage the transfer of scientific know-how, and to provide training for participating scientists.

The JRC is an important scientific source for European policy and legislation, and partners in the secondment programme will have the opportunity to access crucial information to align themselves with forthcoming regulatory policy at an early stage. Information that is specific to the external partner can remain proprietary, provided that this does not prevent future JRC research in the area. The transfer of intellectual property rights can be provided if needed.

The secondment programme will be open to scientists in the following areas:

- Reference laboratory for neutron data;
- Reference laboratory for isotopic measurements;
- Centre for reference materials and chemical reference measurements;
- Actinide user laboratory;
- Hot cell facilities;
- Laboratory for forensic analysis;
- Minor actinide laboratory (MA Lab);
- European microwave signature laboratory;
- Prospective studies on Technology-Employment-Competitiveness;
- Technology watch;
- Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT);
- Beam tubes of the high flux reactor;
- European Reference Laboratory for Atmospheric Pollution;
- System analysis and information assessment;
- Structural mechanics;
- Industrial hazards;
- Safeguards and verification techniques.
