Science and technology are pivotal to good policy making. Our scientific work supports EU policies in a variety of areas from agriculture and food security, to environment and climate change, as well as nuclear safety and security and innovation and growth.
We have clustered the JRC activities into 10 science areas which provide an overview of the research performed in these fields.
Our research topics give a deeper insight into our support towards EU policy.
The impact of our research can vary from increasing our knowledge that improves our understanding of challenges faced by the EU, through to major breakthroughs that bring about fundamental and long-term changes.
