Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The network of innovation relay centres (IRC) is run by European Commission's Innovation Programme. The network spans the EU, Iceland, Norway and Israel, with twinning arrangements extending it to some Central and Eastern European Countries. The goal of the IRC network is to promote innovation, to encourage exchange of research results between organizations across Europe, and to provide advice, consulting and training support which meets the specific needs of each company and their local industrial situation. Most IRCs are consortia consisting of a consortium leader and various partners thus ensuring easy accessibility through a European office network. In this directory, only the coordinators of the consortia are listed along with the name of the person responsible for each centre.
