Across Northern Ireland, there is a network of EU information providers dedicated to serving all sectors of the community.  The Northern Ireland European Information Network (NIEIN) brings together these information providers to share expertise and knowledge and co-operate across a range of activities.  The NIEIN is co-ordinated through a Steering Group which meets regularly to review developments in the EU, as well as to network and exchange information.
