and sharing its know-how with the Member States,
the scientific community and international partners. Key policy areas include: environment and climate change; energy and
transport; agriculture and food security;
health and consumer protection; information society and digital agenda; safety and security, including nuclear; all supported
through a cross-cutting and multidisciplinary approach.
