The Joint Research Centre (JRC) and Ispra

As the corporate research centre of the European Commission, the JRC
maintains a neutral and impartial status which has led to the
development of activities in the areas of certification,
standardisation and accreditation. The Ispra site of the JRC employs
approximately 1800 people and is thus the biggest of the five JRC
sites in Europe. Its staff engage in a variety of scientific areas,
including the Environment, Space Applications, Advanced Materials and
Systems Safety. The JRC has more than 800 partners involved in more
than 140 collaboration agreements with national research
organisations, universities and private industry. The high-level
research and the multi-disciplinary and multi-national ambience at the

retrieval; information processing for the fight against fraud;
handling of large amounts of data; multimedia systems.

Ispra is situated at the South end of the lake 'Lago Maggiore' in
