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 Member States. Its main objectives are:

  • To ensure the exchange of information on the results of the communication strategies;
  • To exchange experiences and good practices in implementing the information and communication measures;
  • To coordinate communication activities between the Member States and the Commission;
  • To debate and assess the effectiveness of the information and communication measures;
  • To propose recommendations to enhance the outreach and impact of communication activities and to raise awareness about the results and added value of those activities.

The INFORM network is an official expert group of the European Commission based on Article 117 of the EU Regulation 1303/2013, as further modified by EU Regulation 2018/1046.

The European Commission's Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy co-ordinates the INFORM network, participates and contributes to communication 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 fulfil the criteria to be part of the INFORM network, contact:
