JRC mission statement & work programme

The JRC provides independent, evidence-based knowledge and science, supporting EU policies to positively impact society.

A trusted partner for policymakers

As a department of the European Commission, we play a key role at multiple stages of the policy cycle. We work closely with other Commission departments, EU institutions and agencies, as well as with scientific partners and policy organisations in Europe and internationally. We offer scientific expertise and competences from a very wide range of scientific disciplines in support of almost all EU policy areas.

  • Anticipate - Looking ahead and seeing more clearly what’s coming to us to be better prepared and react more efficiently to new challenges.
  • Integrate - Connecting the dots and disentangling cross-overs thanks to multi-disciplinary and analytical capability.
  • Impact - Measuring the impact of EU policies, supporting the design and monitoring of policies and performance indicators.

What we offer

  • Scientific excellence: high-quality research accompanied by high standards of scientific integrity and transparency.
  • Anticipation of new challenges and opportunities to prepare policymakers for the complex and interlinked challenges faced by society.
  • Capacity to map, review, analyse and synthesise the best available evidence in support of EU policies.

Cross cutting portfolios

Our new portfolio-based way of working will allow us to better integrate our work across scientific and policy domains to provide coordinated support.

JRC strategy

Our revitalised Strategy 2030 aims to bring added value through our work. We work to anticipate what will be important for EU policies. We integrate science and knowledge into legislation. Our work intends to have positive impact for people in Europe (and beyond).

In this revitalised Strategy 2030, we have sought to reset, re-imagine and re-energise the JRC with a value proposition rooted in anticipation, integration and impact. We offer expanded foresight capacities, a more systemic approach in the frame of cross-cutting portfolios, and support to policymakers to maximise and measure impact. In the spirit of trust, collaboration and transparency, we signal our increased openness to engaging with partners to put science at the service of the European project.
