Brussels, 21 January 2002
The Spanish Presidency web service provided by CORDIS, the European Commission's Research and Development Information Service, is now available in English.
The service, recently launched in Spanish, was developed jointly by CORDIS and the Spanish Ministry for science and technology. The service provides a window on research and innovation-related activities during the six months of the Presidency, which runs from January to June this year.
The service will provide information on Presidency priorities, relevant issues, research activities and coverage of Presidency news and events. The site also introduces key institutions, public research organisations and funding opportunities in the Spanish autonomous regions. Detailed information on Spanish participation in European research programmes is also available.
The English language site will enable users to follow discussions on the next Framework programme for research, FP6, and the European research area (ERA).
