The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission ‘s science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The JRC is a Directorate-General of the European Commission under the responsibility of Tibor Navracsics , Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth & Sport. The current Director General of the JRC is Vladimír Šucha. [1] 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.

Composed of strategy and coordination, knowledge production, knowledge management and support directorates, the JRC is spread across six sites in five different countries within the EU: in Belgium ( Brussels and Geel ), Germany ( Karlsruhe ), Italy ( Ispra ), the Netherlands ( Petten ), and Spain ( Seville ).

History[ edit ]

The Italian Centre in Ispra originally belonged to the Comitato Nazionale per l’Energia Nucleare (CNEN) and was officially transferred to the Community on March 1, 1961. [2] Since 1973, non-nuclear research evolved rapidly, especially in topics related to safety and the environment. In 1992, the results of a study led to a proposal to convert the JRC Ispra site into an environmentally-optimised model site; the “ECO Centre”. At the beginning of the 1980s, re-examination of the mandate and evaluation of the activities of the JRC began. Future activities were to continue to support the Commission’s implementations of Community policies. After 16 years of research, the nuclear reactor at JRC Ispra [3] was shut down in 1983. [4] The JRC employs around 2787 staff with an annual budget of 372,5 million euros for the year 2017. [5]

Science areas[ edit ]

The JRC research activities are clustered into ten science areas [6]

  • Agriculture and food security
  • Economic and Monetary Union
  • Energy and transport
  • Environment and climate change
  • Health and consumer protection
  • Information Society
  • Innovation and growth
  • Nuclear safety and security
  • Safety and Security
  • Standards

      Land Resource Management Unit



      Alan Belward
      Unit Head

      The Land Resource Management Unit provides information for European and International policies aiming to balance competing land-use demands whilst securing access to natural resources and maintaining ecosystem services. Land and soil should be considered as finite resources – we must optimise food, fibre and fuel production whilst maintaining and enhancing the land’s role as a carbon sink and a hydrologic reservoir that underpins biological diversity; our research documents trends in the condition of land, the efficiency of its use and management choices, along with how these respond to changing environmental, societal and economic conditions.
