Joint Research Centre: 7 research institutes located in five European Union Member States

The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is a Directorate General of the European Commission: DG-JRC (Directorate General – Joint Research Centre), which has seven research institutes located in five EU Member States (Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain).

JRC provides scientific and technical support to the engineering, development, implementation and monitoring of European Union policies in order to ensure the independence of research activities in relation to the private interests and national policies, as an essential condition to pursue its international mission.

JRC’s role is of coordination and research in the numerous national research foundations community networks, universities, advanced industry of the European Union member states, as well as of performance of an extensive set of independent research using the skills of the best European scientists who work permanently in the centre or only for certain research periods. In these laboratories, complex studies and experiments are conducted on behalf of the European institutions. JRC collaborates with foundations and networks outside Europe as well as with global networks in the scientific and legal field. JRC is currently led by the Czech Vladimir Šucha.
