Joint Research Centre (JRC)

As the European Commission's science and knowledge service, the mission of Joint Research Centre (JRC) is to support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle. Its work has a direct impact on the lives of citizens by contributing with its research outcomes to a healthy and safe environment, secure energy supplies, sustainable mobility and consumer health and safety.

The JRC is a Directorate-General of the European Commission under the responsibility of Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport.

Its Board of Governors assists and advises the Director-General on matters relating to the role and the scientific, technical and financial management of the JRC. Comprised of strategy and coordination, knowledge production, knowledge management and support directorates, the JRC is spread across six sites (Brussels, Geel, Ispra, Karlsruhe, Petten and Seville) in five different countries (Belgium, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain) within the EU.
