CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service, part of the European Commission's Innovation/SME Programme, will be present at the second World Conference of Science Journalists in Budapest (2-4 July 1999). CORDIS will take this opportunity to introduce its website, http://cordis.europa.eu, as an on-line information source and awareness service devoted to European research and innovation policy.

What are the advantages of using CORDIS?

CORDIS is a free Web service which offers easy public access to timely and comprehensive information on EU research, development and innovation activities, both at national and European levels. To help its users get the most out of this information, CORDIS has developed a variety of specific services to make them better understand, participate in and benefit from all that European research has to offer.

The CORDIS News database is Your Source to get daily European R&D News:
