European Documentation Centres
The European Documentation Centres (EDCs) are located in universities. Their aims are to help universities promote and consolidate their teaching and research on European policies and the process of European integration.
The EDCs are available to lecturers, researchers and students, and anyone else who uses the library. They take part in the debate on the European Union, if necessary with the other European relays and information networks.
In each university, the EDCs organise symposia, conferences and round tables. Some of these events are targeted at people who are keen to follow the development of European policies and institutions; others are intended more to raise awareness of the Union among the general public.
The EDCs receive documents on the decisions made by the institutions under the various European policies, as well as the preparatory work leading up to them. They also make publications issued by the institutions available, again with the aim of increasing awareness of the work being done. This documentation enables them to provide a question-and-answer service.
This network was set up in 1963 and is now made up of more than 400 centres throughout the world, including about 300 in the Member States
