Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The goal of the European Environment Agency (EEA) is to screen, evaluate, validate and process existing data and information on the environment and to transform this into efficient and reliable information at a European level both for the Community, the Member States and the public at large. The work of the EEA is based on the activity of the European Environment Information and Observation Network (EIONET). The EIONET covers 7 European Topic Centres, 18 National Focal Points, and 458 National units which are appointed National Reference Centres on a certain topic, or main component elements. The Agency furthermore purchases expertise for projects from all over Europe, whenever necessary. Supported by the EIONET, the Agency has to provide the necessary guidelines and technical specifications so that future information is reliable, consistent, comparable and efficient. The products must be targeted to be used directly, address priority questions , and they must be produced efficiently. This second annual report shows through the results achieved in 1995, the role that the Agency can play by providing accessible information for policy makers and the public, as required by the regulation.
