CORDIS launches German Presidency R&D and Innovation Information Service

CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service, has launched a new online service covering the research and innovation activities carried out under the German Presidency of the European Union (1 January - 30 June 2007).

Highlighting the latest news and most relevant developments in the research policy sphere during this period, the German Presidency Service is part of the gateway to national and regional activities on CORDIS.

The service highlights the R&D policies of the German Council Presidency and explains the research priorities that the German government will be pursuing during the country's time at the helm of the EU.

Throughout the Presidency, there will be numerous events, ranging from formal and informal ministerial meetings to open conferences, to support German efforts to develop and strengthen the European innovation environment.

The CORDIS German Presidency Service is a central gateway to research and development (R&D) and innovation activities carried out during the German Presidency. It provides up to date information about policy initiatives and highlights the latest R&D developments in a dedicated news section.

Links to other relevant websites, dealing with the German research scene and research policy in Germany, provide readers with important resources for further information about the R&D and innovation sector in the EU's biggest Member State. Analyses of the R&D system in Germany, as well as a comprehensive projects and results database and information on research funding, are also available, via the CORDIS national service for Germany.

Showcases provide an in-depth overview of particularly important initiatives, success stories or developments. Finally, an extensive contacts database enables users to locate and get in touch with relevant individuals or research organisations.

The German Presidency service on CORDIS is therefore a comprehensive gateway for everyone interested in R&D policy in Europe and in Germany. It was developed by CORDIS in cooperation with the relevant German authorities and is available in English and German.
