CORDIS, the European Commission's Research and Development Information Service, is offering a free exchange platform for news, announcements and information on research and innovation.
CORDIS Wire has been running in a pilot phase for the last three months. It now offers a dynamic interface to the research and business community and helps them disseminate and promote their activities. Open to all, the service welcomes high quality information on innovative policies, results, success stories, case studies, best practices, publications, events and more. It aims to become a central repository for releases from various bodies from the European Union and Associated States, including research agencies, small and medium sized enterprises, business support services, incubators, ministries and universities.
The service is available to all CORDIS users seeking news items on innovation in Europe. In addition, the feature offers an excellent opportunity for contributors to receive coverage in the media on a regional, national and international level as journalists tracking innovative news can also use this service.
CORDIS Wire complements CORDIS News and offers yet more visibility to externally generated information, including draft material and field specific news. The fledging service also provides further awareness on trends in European innovation.
