The VALUE relay centre network was created in 1993 under the VALUE II programme. Each centre in the network organizes a variety of events to provide information on European Community research programmes. A primary function of the centres is to provide a framework for the exploitation and dissemination of research results. The VALUE Relay Centre Coordination Unit regularly collects information on VRC events which are then published in the monthly "Calendar of events of the VRC network". This is available in printed and electronic form. The electronic form is available on the ECHO host of the European Communities. The printed form is available from the VALUE Relay Centre Coordination Unit.
