The Europe Direct network is one of the main channels of information about the EU for European citizens. The overall objective of the network is to provide citizens with easy access to information about the EU and its activities. The centres are hosted within existing entities that guarantee a good geographical coverage as well as the necessary capacity and expertise to deal with queries from the public.
The three centres will be able to provide answers to general questions related to the EU and to direct enquiries to the best sources of information on EU matters. They will also have a number of EU publications available for public dissemination.
The choice of the Europe Direct host organisations was made through a Call for Proposals launched in all EU Member States towards the end of 2012. The Europe Direct centres in Malta are part of a network of about 480 EU information centres across the EU.
