The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) opens its
scientific laboratories and facilities to people working in academia and
research organisations, industry, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and more in general to the public and private sector.
The JRC offers access to its non-nuclear facilities to researchers and scientists from EU Member States and countries associated to the EU Research Programme Horizon 2020. For nuclear facilities, the JRC opens to EU Member States and to countries associated to the Euratom Research Programme.
Offering access to visiting researchers is part of JRC's strategy to:
- enhance dissemination of scientific knowledge;
- boost competiveness;
- bridge the gap between research and industry;
- provide training and capacity building.
Scientists will have the opportunity to work in the following fields:
- nuclear safety and security (Euratom Laboratories);
- biosciences/life sciences;
- physical sciences;
