Who's Who: VALUE Relay Centres
The VALUE Relay Centres (VRCs) are a dedicated network of proactive advisory centres which bring Community RTD activities closer to its clients such as SMEs, research laboratories, manufacturing companies, universities, technology brokers and information intermediaries. The Commission has published a "Who's Who" guide which provides a profile and contact details of each of the 32 centres in the network. The VRCs across Europe work closely together to provide an up-to-date, specialist information and advisory service that is not easily available through other public channels. The services they offer are valuable prior to participation in specific programmes, throughout the duration of the research projects and for the subsequent exploitation period.
