Following the success of the joint VALUE/SPRINT Information Conference held in Dresden on 1-2 December 1992 a second Information Conference is to take place in Leipzig on 2-3 March 1993.

The Information Conference and Exhibition, timed to coincide with the opening of the VALUE Relay Centre (VRC) in Leipzig, is organized by the Commission of the European Communities, Directorate-General for Information Technologies and Industries, and Telecommunications, DG XIII, in collaboration with the State Ministry for Economic and Labour Affairs of Sachsen.

It is expected that this event will be filled to capacity following oversubscription for the previous Conference, when over 800 written requests for attendance were received, though conference space was limited to 200. All those unable to attend the Dresden Conference were informed that the second event was envisaged.

The programme for 2-3 March 1993 will be similar to that of the Dresden Conference and Exhibition, with the added provision of more time for open discussion and for the development and discussion of projects ideas.

- VALUE: A number of presentations will describe the possibilities available for the exploitation of Community research results, and explain the increasingly important role played by the VALUE programme, demonstrating the range of methods this programme can employ in the support of RTD exploitation or dissemination.

- SPRINT: Explanation of SPRINT actions will indicate how this programme aims to promote the professional development and European orientation of innovation intermediaries in demand-led technology transfer, and in the development of a pan-European infrastructure to support this goal.

The CORDIS database service will again be present. The online database and the CD-ROM version will be demonstrated by our friendly and knowledgeable CORDIS staff. At the Dresden Conference particular enthusiasm was shown for the CORDIS RTD-Partners database, which aids organizations to locate suitable partners in other Member States with a view to possible cooperation on future RTD projects.

A press conference (1 March, 14.00) marking the opening of the new VALUE Relay Centre (VCR) will precede the Information Conference and Exhibition.
