EU Information Centres
The first European Documentation Centres were founded in 1963, nowadays there are more than 600 Centres around the world, and they are mostly open at the universities, national libraries and research centres. The main goal of the EUi Centres activity is dissemination of information about the EU and its policy, granting the assistance to universities and research centres in students’ studies and research works concerning European integration, and also promoting students’ participation in debates on European issues.
