The European Youth Portal is an idea proposed by the Commission's White Paper "A new impetus for European Youth".  This  initiative of the European Commission  aims to give young people quick and easy access to relevant youth related information on Europe and the EU. The objective is to enhance young people's participation in public life and to contribute to their active citizenship. The European Youth Portal targets young people between 15 and 25 years of age and caters for the needs of those working with young people.

The EU for its Younger citizens



Eurodesk is a network of information centres about the EU issues that targets young people.

The Eurodesk staff answer questions on the EU relevant to young people, ranging from general  queries, such as study opportunities abroad, to more complex questions on the EU youth policies. In addition, they provide information on the EU funding opportunities for Young people and run awareness- raising campaigns on European issues at school and for youth organisations.

There are nearly 1000 Eurodesk centers in 30 countries.

European Documentation Centres


European Documentation Centres are a network of information centres which were established by the European Union in 1963 to support study, teaching and research at university level. They contain official publications and documents of the institutions of the European Union.

The EDCs can help you find information on the following subjects:


  1. European law (law includes regulation & jurisprudence)

  2. European integration

  3. European policies and institutions




Gateway to the recognition of academic qualifications




The National Academic Recognition and Information Centres (NARIC) deal with academic recognition of diplomas and periods of study in the EU and partner countries.

The national centres provide information and advice on recognition of foreign diplomas, degrees and other qualifications as well as on the different education szstems. Staff also provide guidance on opportunities for studying abroad, including information on loan and scholarships, as well as on practical questions related to moving abroad and to the recognition of academic qualifications.
