Europe and especially the European Union, is becoming increasingly important at municipal level. For example as a result of European legislation this affects municipalities to a considerable extent, directly or indirectly.
Consequently, paying close attention to developments at European level and monitoring their relevance for the town is of special importance to the regional centre of Memmingen, because it is only possible to secure a good position for the future and act appropriately if information is available at an early stage.
Due to the town of Memmingen’s close involvement with European affairs, the European Commission has named Memmingen’s Europe Office as an “associated partner of The Europe Direct” network. The Europe Direct Information Centre is part of the Europe Direct Network and is responsible for the citizenry in the town and its surroundings. There are altogether 59 of these Europe Direct Information Centres in the whole of Germany. There are roughly 480 all over Europe. All the Europe Direct Information Centres are affiliated with the Europe Direct Network.
At local level the Europe Direct Information Centres serve as a link between citizens and the institutions of the EU.
It is possible for anyone interested to obtain information about the European Union easily and conveniently. The Europe Direct Information Centres are financed by municipalities and are promoted by the European Union’s budget.
