New dedicated website for Europe Direct Eastleigh
The Europe Direct Information Centres (EDICs) are an EU-wide network of EU information centres co-funded by the European Commission together with local partners. The local partner hosting and co-funding the Eastleigh EDIC is European Law Monitor in Eastleigh. The EDICs are intended to form one of the primary sources of information for the public and business community on EU policies and legislation, and form part of a European Union strategy intending to close the information gap between the EU and its public.
One of the changes for the reorganisation of the EDICs for 2013 is the requirement for each EDIC to have a dedicated website to promoting the current communication priorities for the European Commission, with the main priority for 2013-14 being the promotion of the European Parliament elections in May 2014, for which the new website will have dedicated sections from October 2013.
