The EU Joint Research Centre (JRC) collects the tools and databases to each published entry on the EU Science Hub respectively. The collection contains a total of 177 tools and databases for all policy domains. The tools and databases are categorised by name and acronym and can be filtered by research area or keyword.
About this tool
The Big Policy Canvas Knowledge Base is a state-of-the-art, online and dynamic repository that functions as an accumulator uniting all the knowledge produced during the project. It is structured along the three dimensions of needs, trends and assets and furthermore offers a mapping among them by defining how they are interconnected and how they influence each other.

Copernicus is the European Union's Earth Observation Programme and offers information services based on satellite Earth Observation and in situ (non-space) data. The Programme is coordinated and managed by the European Commission. It is implemented in partnership with the Member States, the European Space Agency (ESA) and further European organisations.
EUMETSAT is the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment with the purpose of supplying reliable and accurate weather and climate-related satellite data, images and products – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – to the National Meteorological Services of the EU Member States and other users worldwide.
EUMETSAT provides data, products and support services to the Copernicus information services and user communities, with a focus on marine, atmosphere and climate.
Regulatory sandboxes are experimental rooms to test policies or business models in an environment with minimal legal requirements. Certain governments have already started to adopt the concept, which originally evolved in the fintech startup context. It helps governments better understand new technology and its regulatory implications
OPEN ARTFISH stands for Open Approaches, Rules and Techniques for Fisheries statistical monitoring. It is a generic database which estimates the total catch and value by species for sampling schemes of small-scale fisheries.
The toolkit comprises a generic database (OPEN ARTFISH) and a mobile phone application. The toolkit’s primary objective is to facilitate the implementation of cost-effective and sustainable routine data collection, storage and analysis of data, using the appropriate statistical procedure
An application which is capable of an analysing the blood sugar level of the app user.
Runestatic offers a vast amount of diagnostic health tools and apps for the smart phone communities
The European Data Portal harvests the metadata of Public Sector Information available on public data portals across European countries. Information regarding the provision of data and the benefits of re-using data is also included
The United States Department of Commerce and the Bureau of Economic Analysis in partnership with the European Commission's DG CONNECT and Eurostat have established a Transatlantic Open Data Partnership focused on economic data. The eu.us.opendata R library is the direct result of this collaborative effort, enabling easy access to comparable datasets from the Eurostat API and BEA API. Built following a Linked Open Data design, the R library taps into the Bureau of Economic Analysis' API and the Eurostat API to make comparable data accessible.
A tool to guide policy makers to derive specific policies and regulatory mechanisms in an agile and iterative manner – integrating both design thinking and evidence - based policy making. This notion of a canvas is borrowed from the business world. The canvas approach helps translate broad insights and understandings to the needs of a particular country. It also helps define the key issues at stake as well as metrics to evaluate success and suggest avenues for possible iteration and improvement.
