Due to its many years of competence and experience, the Rhein-Kreis Neuss' Europe office was selected as one of 47 local Europe information centres in Germany by the European Commission in April 2005; the number of offices has meanwhile risen to 53.
The EUROPE DIRECT Informationsrelais Mittlerer Niederrhein (an information relay for the mid-Lower Rhine region) seeks to offer a local, free information service on EU law, politics, programmes and financial plans to the citizens of the district-affiliated cities and municipalities of the Rhein-Kreis Neuss, the cities of Krefeld and Monchengladbach as well as the districts of Viersen and Kleve and the Rhein-Erft-Kreis.
If required, computer-aided research and direct telephone contact to the EU institutions and EU information desks is also available.
