Union's Information Relay
The European Commission uses relays in the
information process, in accordance with the principle of
decentralisation. The information relays are local structures created
within pre-existing, experienced host organisations. They provide the
public with information about the EU and its policies in a specially
tailored and user-friendly format. On this site you will find a
description of the main networks which make up the relays, plus an
update on their day-to-day activity.
This site will grow and develop as a service
of the European Commission's Unit responsible for Libraries and European
Documentation Centres. It aims to become an essential tool for
librarians, documentalists and researchers working on European material.
