JRC Open Access

The European Commission‘s Joint Research Centre (JRC) gives leading researchers from across Europe and beyond access to its world-class facilities and laboratories, enabling state-of-the-art experimental research, collaboration and capacity building with a European dimension. It does so through the programme for open access to JRC research infrastructures.


The JRC is the science and knowledge service of the European Commission. The JRC employs scientists to carry out research providing independent scientific advice and support to EU policy, tackling the big challenges our societies are facing today.
