Europe Direct Information Centre

Information_Centre_ImageThe chamber now hosts a Europe Direct Information Centre (EDIC), which aims to provide local citizens with information, advice and assistance for all matters relating to the European Union, shaped around local and regional priorities.

Europe Direct Edinburgh is part of a network of 19 centres in the UK, 500 across Europe which aim to act as an interface between citizens and the European Union at a local level.

The center is designed to give members of the public local access to information on the role of the European Union, how it operates and the treaties that underpin it. The centre also displays material on a variety of topics and views on the European Union, and explains what the European Union does and why it is relevant to the people of Edinburgh and the UK. We provide free phone access to the Europe Direct telephone information services and web access for the Europe website.

The centre is accessible during normal business hours, Monday – Thursday 9am to 5pm and Friday, 9am to 3pm. You can drop into the centre, or contact us by phone or e-mail. Tel – 0131 221 2999 or email –
