JRC publishes Annual Report for 2018
The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has published its Annual Report for 2018. The report, which was released on 27 June 2019, provides an overview of the JRC' activities as well as corporate initiatives, international agreements, facts and figures and resources related to the functioning of the JRC.
Among the aspects of the JRC's work highlighted in the report is the fact that the JRC played an important pivotal role in preparing the long term budget of the European Union for the first time in 2018, by screening the evaluation processes of existing regulations and spending programmes. Another novelty was the first-ever Commission-wide Knowledge Week, organised by the JRC to strengthen knowledge management capacity across the EC. In 2018, the JRC furthermore developed a scientifically valid common testing methodology in cooperation with Member States to address concerns about dual food quality;set up two new Knowledge Centres and two new Competence Centres to support EU policymakers with the best available knowledge and tools, amongst other activities.
