EUROPE DIRECT is an all-European information network which is managed and co-funded by the European Commission. It was founded in 2005. The main functioning principles have been defined by the European Commission and are the same in all 27 European Union member states. The EUROPE DIRECT network consists of EUROPE DIRECT centres and European Documentation Centres. These are one of the most important communication tools between the European Union and its citizens at the local and regional level. The main task of EUROPE DIRECT is to answer the questions and doubts concerning the EU-related issues. Europe Direct information centres also offer free brochures and free contact with the Europe Direct Contact Centre. Moreover, they provide computers with access to the Europa website (European Union portal) and a feedback mechanism which enables citizens to direct information about their problems, doubts or comments to Brussels. Most of all, however, Europe Direct deals with information activities directed to the local society.
