About this programme

As the European Commission's science and knowledge service, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to support EU policies with independent, evidence-based, scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle.

Located across five different countries, the JRC hosts specialist laboratories and unique research facilities and is home to thousands of scientists working to support the EU policy.

Working in close cooperation with policy Directorates-General, the JRC addresses key societal challenges while stimulating innovation through developing new methods, tools and standards, and sharing its know-how with the Member States, the scientific community and international partners. The JRC collaborates with over a thousand organisations worldwide whose scientists have access to many JRC facilities through various collaboration agreements. The JRC is a key player in supporting successful investment in knowledge and innovation foreseen by the Horizon 2020 Work Programme.
