Europe Direct Edinburgh is here to help you, your business and your family. We are here to inform you about your rights and to find practical tips to help you move and work around the EU. We are part of a network of 17 centres in the UK, 500 across Europe which act as an interface between the EU and its citizens at local level.
The information centre is located within the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce office at 40 George Street. We display and hold materials on a variety of topics on the European Union, which explains what the European Union does, and why it is relevant to the people of Edinburgh and the UK.
The European Commission focuses its work around 10 key priorities, which can be found here. Our aim is to help you understand how these effect you. European Commission also works to help member states with their public spending ensuring citizens money is used for the best possible ends.
Our Europe Direct Information Centre is now closed. If you have any questions please contact the European Commission Office in Edinburgh:
