Three different services are available for people under the umbrella of “Europe Direct”. All of them serve citizens, all of them are free of charge.
The Europe Direct Contact Centre (EDCC) offers an EU-wide phone and mail information service on all EU matters;
Europe Direct Information Centres (EDICs) are local contact points. They provide information and answer questions on all kind of European matters. And they answer in person and taking account of the local context. Well-trained staff engages with people by organising events in schools, debates with local and regional politicians and present Europe at fairs. With over a million enquires every year, European decision-makers also have a chance to learn directly about peoples’ needs and concerns.
European Documentation Centres promote education and research on EU integration. They offer a wide range of documents on European affairs and encourage the academic community to engage in the debate on Europe.
