To promote science and technological development in the region, the Basque Country in Spain has now established its own homepage on the CORDIS "Research & Innovation in the Regions" Web service. On this site the user can find useful information about the R&D situation, as well as details of funding opportunities in the region.

For the past few years, the Basque region has been working to introduce new technologies, modernise production processes, and improve product design and quality. As part of this, the Science and Technology Plan 1997-2000 was established to lay down policy guidelines in this area.

More information regarding this Science and Technology Plan can be found in the "Spotlight" section on the Basque Country's homepage on CORDIS. Relevant documents can be downloaded from this site, while it also gives links to research success stories from organisations in the Basque Country.

The Basque Network for Technology, arising from the Science and Technology Plan 1997-2000, forms a complete network of infrastructure working in Euskadi (three of the Basque Country's territories: Araba, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa) with the aim of promoting R&D. Links to local services for this network of infrastructure can be found on the "Services and networks" section, accessible from the Basque Country's homepage on CORDIS.

As well as a general introduction to the Basque Country, the service gives the user an overview of funding opportunities for R&D in Euskadi. Additionally, direct links are provided to provincial councils, Spanish government research financing agencies, and the main sources of European funds in Euskadi.

Furthermore there are links to EUSKADI - the Basque Country site, where information on the Basque government and measures planned in 1999 and 2000 can be found. This site also provides a monthly newsletter from the Basque Country. Additionally, the Innovation Relay Centre in the region has its own link from the Basque Country's homepage.

The "Research & Innovation in the Regions" Web service has been established to enable regions to promote their research and innovation-related infrastructures, services and activities.
