The non-nuclear research activities of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) are grouped under a specific programme with individual budget allocation.

JRC provides customer-driven scientific and technical support to the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies. As the research ‘arm’ of the European Commission, the JRC is a reference centre for science and technology issues that serves the interests of the Member States while at the same time remaining independent of special interests.

JRC has a budget of €1751 million to carry out direct non-nuclear research under FP7 in four broad policy areas:

  1. Prosperity in a knowledge-intensive society
  2. Solidarity and responsible resource management
  3. Security and freedom
  4. Europe as a world partner
