Brussels, 13 May 2003
CORDIS, the European Commission's Research and Development Information Service, is providing a dedicated service on research, policy-oriented activities and specific support actions on environmental issues.
The new service, part of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) portal, offers central access to all related information, and direct links to aid the submission of proposals and project management.
Users can quickly access information on news and events, review documentation on open and forthcoming calls, identify support and consult publications and useful links. In addition, this service offers quick access to the details of over 1,000 organisations willing to participate in environmental research. It also offers links to more than 1,600 previous projects in the fields of water quality, earth observation and cultural heritage.
The service provides timely information and will highlight upcoming activities, or newly funded projects as soon as they become available. This dedicated web interface also aims at promoting priority activities ranging from the preservation of ecosystems and protection of biodiversity to the development of new sustainable development strategies. http://www.cordis.lu/sustdev/environment /home.html
