Abstract: The Joint Research Centre provides scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies. Its work on nanoscience and nanotechnology focuses principally on environmental, health and safety aspects. Its relevant areas of expertise include standardisation and metrology, nanobiotechnology, ¬toxi¬cology, environment and health effects of ultrafine particles, and technology foresight studies. The JRC offers training for scientific/technical staff and science students, including PhD students, post-doctoral research fellows, in-service trainees, seconded national experts, and scientists from EU applicant countries. These fellowships are aimed at developing training and mobility opportunities for researchers throughout the course of their careers. EU enlargement is an important priority: funding is available for scientists from applicant countries via research fellowships and the schemes for visiting scientists and national experts. Researchers and regulators from the applicant countries may also take part in specialist workshops and advanced training courses. Particular emphasis is placed on training for scientific and technological support to policy-making.
