As the European Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre's (JRC) 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 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.

Across Europe, the JRC has built up successful partnerships with a large number of public and private organisations under the EU Research Framework Programmes, the latest being Horizon 2020.
