JRC-IES: Partner 9 & EC - JRC: Partner 26

Joint Research Centre IES (JRC-IES)

The Joint Research Centre provides customer-driven scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies. Within the Space Application Institute the use of space derived data and other geo-spatial data from other sources is promoted and developed, in the service of EU policies related to agriculture, fisheries, environment, transport and anti-fraud. The Natural Hazards Project within SAI provides scientific and technical support including the production of risk indicators and damage maps for the protection of citizens against forest fires and floods. Tools are developed and provided to improve existing practices in disaster management during the prevention phase, during and after the crisis phase. Within the flooding activity both flood damages and flood hazards are assessed using satellite imagery, GIS databases and simulation models. Expertise in the institute is mainly in the fields of remote sensing, GIS, simulation modelling, agriculture and soil science.
