What do we do?
Europa decentraal keeps local and regional government employees abreast of European issues, such as state aid, public procurement, the environment, employment and social policy, culture and education and the freedom of movement.
Europa decentraal provides information and advice, answers queries via its helpdesk and works to further expand the knowledge network. The website plays an important role in service provision, providing a daily source of European news. It also contains dossiers on a wide range of European subjects, giving the visitor easy access to the information he or she requires.
Europa decentraal organises events and meetings, distributes publications and a weekly newsletter (de Europese Ster), and promotes the exchange of best practices. Many employees of local and regional authorities use the free information and advice service every week.
