The European Gateway

The European Gateway was developed by the Portuguese Network of European Documentation Centres (PNEDC) in order to promote access to academic Portuguese studies on European matters, as well as to all European related information that is dispersed amongst various public and private entities.

The current coordination of the PNEDC, which has been in place since 2001, is exercised jointly by the Directors of the Universidade Lusíada European Documentation Centre (EDC) and the Instituto Nacional de Administração EDC. This project was funded by POS_Conhecimento.

The European Gateway intends to be a unique centralized point of access to the leading sources of European information, a powerful tool in the fight against European illiteracy and to promote a dialogue between citizens and institutions. It also intends to help build a European Research Area and assist citizens through the European Space for Higher Education.
