As the Commission's in-house science service,
the Joint Research Centre's mission is to provide
EU policies with independent, evidence-based
scientific and technical support throughout the whole
policy cycle.
Working in close cooperation with policy DirectoratesGeneral, the JRC addresses key societal challenges
while stimulating innovation through developing new
methods, tools and standards, and sharing its knowhow with the Member States, the scientific
community and international partners.
