For the first time, CORDIS - the Community Research and Development Information Service - will be available in the national language of a new member state. CORDIS has now launched its daily news service on research, technological development and innovation in Polish. Offering the latest developments in EU research policy and funding, innovation trends and examples of EU-funded projects, the new service will benefit Polish researchers, entrepreneurs, policy makers and journalists with easier access to a free source of information. It will also help to boost Polish participation in EU research programmes and attract smaller companies to the benefits of the knowledge-based economy. User surveys show that CORDIS News is seen as the most important source of news on research and development in Europe. With over 300 000 page accesses every month, and over 40 000 subscribers to the print edition, CORDIS focus magazine, the service offers a free, interactive communication channel for Polish researchers and companies. The Polish-language news service is complemented by further guidance on CORDIS services, taken from the CORDIS Mini-guide that is also now available online in translated form. This is the first step in the migration of CORDIS multilingual services to Polish-language versions.
