Towards a safe and just operating
space for EU agriculture


Location: Seville, Spain
Role in the project:

The JRC contributes to different work packages with its complementary indicators (food system monitoring) and modelling activities (development, baselines, scenarios) related to the CAPRI and MAGNET models, being part of the JRC iMAP modelling platform. Dissemination of results will be supported by the JRC Data-Modelling platform of resource economics (DataM). Furthermore, communication with the EC’s Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy will be facilitated.


The Joint Research Centre is the science for policy Directorate-General of the European Commission and provides independent, evidence-based knowledge and science, supporting EU policies to positively impact society. The JRC plays a key role at multiple stages of the EU policy cycle. It contributes to the overall objective of Horizon Europe.
The JRC works closely with research and policy organisations in the Member States, with the European institutions and agencies, and with scientific partners in Europe and internationally, including within the United Nations system.

The core strengths the JRC offers are anticipation, integration and impact. Anticipation focuses on what is coming at us, beyond the latest crisis, and being able to provide the scientific underpinning for future policy initiatives. Integration means enhancing our ability to build links between the different scientific and policy areas inside the Commission and beyond, since the challenges we face are so complex that one single area of science can rarely provide all the necessary answers. Last, but not least, impact is about assisting policymakers to track and assess the impact of their policies.

The JRC site in Seville provides socio-economic and techno-economic support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies.
