The European Commission’s science and knowledge service
Joint Research Centre
Scientific knowledge plays a crucial role in addressing global challenges such as climate change, an ageing population, economic crises or migration. We act as a science provider and knowledge broker. We ensure that policy-makers have the best available evidence when taking important decisions that have an impact on your daily life. Our research contributes to jobs and economic growth, a healthy and safe environment, secure energy supplies, sustainable mobility, consumer protection and safety and nuclear safeguards to name but a few areas. We also play a key role in the development of... standards that stimulate innovation and competitiveness in Europe. The aim is to use scientific knowledge to build solutions that are effective, efficient, equitable and sustainable.
