The EU-wide INFORM network of communication officers

INFORM is an EU-wide network of communication officers responsible for communicating ERDF and Cohesion Fund investments in the 28 Member States. Its main objective is to improve the visibility of EU part-financed projects by sharing experiences and good practices. It seeks to improve the quality of communication activities, in order to increase awareness among the wider public about the benefits of Regional policy projects. The legal basis for the INFORM network is Article 117 (4) of the Commission Regulation 1303/2013 pdf.

The European Commission's Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy co-ordinates the INFORM network, participates and contributes to communications meetings organised on a national level, and helps the INFORM network members interpret the information and communication legislation.

Membership to the INFORM network is open to staff working on information and publicity issues in a Managing Authority or Joint Technical Secretariat (European Territorial Co-operation programmes). If you fulfill the criteria to be part of the INFORM network, contact:
