European Documentation Centre (EDC)

European Documentation Centre (EDC)

Inaugurated in October 1995, the European Documentation Centre (EDC) is part of the Europe Direct Information Network created by the European Commission in universities and other education and research institutions in the member states of the European Union and in some third party countries.

The EDC main objective is to help the academic community to promote research and education in relation to European integration collecting, processing and presenting the collection on the European Union and materials concerning the integration processes.

The mission of the EDC is to make the EU’s information sources available to users, to inform on European Union policies and to be a key European information point in the University.

On the basis of the agreement, the EDC continuously receives a compulsory copy from the Office for Official Publications of the European Communities in Luxembourg and has privileged access to European Union’s electronic databases.

Since July of 1998, the EDC is a part of the Comunidad de Madrid European Network of Information (REIMAD).
