Knowledge Centres the ambition of the European Commision.

These are virtual entities, bringing together experts and knowledge from different locations inside and outside the European Commission. Their job is to inform policy-makers in a transparent, tailored and concise manner about the status and findings of the latest scientific evidence. They are designed to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ in their respective areas, and include communities of practice.

Competence Centres

These are centred on analytical tools which can be applied to any policy area, bringing together in one place extensive expertise in this field. They offer training courses in the use of the tools for policy-making, advise on the choice of tools and also work directly with the Commission policy Directorates-General to apply the tools to the policy problems in hand.
