This document is the Guide to the Innovation Relay Centres (Winter 1998-99).

The Innovation Relay Centres (IRCs) are technology advisory centres that provide trans-national technology cooperation services. Each centre is staffed by business and technology specialists that have intimate knowledge of the technological and economic profile of the companies and regions it serves.

IRCs help local companies access the European technology market by promoting their technologies across Europe (outward technology transfer) and by identifying and importing technological solutions (inward technology transfer). There are 53 Relay centres in the European Union, Iceland, Norway and Israel, with a further 10 Fellow Members in Central and Eastern Europe.
