A new thematic web portal has just been launched on Europa: it provides a user-friendly and easily accessible presentation of the Information Society, grouped under 7 broad themes. The policies and activities currently being pursued by the European Commission are also clearly presented and re-grouped under their own menus, to ease the navigation of more frequent visitors, familiar with the site. For its launch, the Information Society Portal has been published only in English, but in the coming months, the more general "higher levels" of content addressed to the interested public, will be presented in all 20 Community languages. Europe's Information Society Portal is the pilot for " Europa 2nd Generation" and is part of the Commission's reforms. The new Europa modernises the presence of all EU Institutions on the Internet, and enhances their levels interactivity with a wider audience. All subjects addressed by the European Commission are to be presented thematically, and totally independently of the structure of Directorates General undertaking the work.
