INTAS, the cooperative body which fosters scientific links with the Newly Independent States (NIS) of the former Soviet Union has managed to cut its bureaucracy and develop into a 24 hour organisation by establishing 12 new information desks throughout the region its programmes cover.

A series of information points have been established to help INTAS participants or applicants find the answers to their questions in their own country and in a language they naturally understand.

'We found that many of the questions we were being asked were similar and easy to answer, but there was nobody on the spot to let people know straight away,' said an INTAS representative.

Those running the new information desks were trained in Brussels for three days and have now returned not only to provide information on the forthcoming INTAS calls for 2000 and 2001 but also to act as a source of feedback. Most of those running the information desk will simply be adding this duty onto their normal tasks.

Full information on the location and contact details of the information desks will be available shortly on INTAS' website.
