The Integrated Information System

The website Euroskop is the official government website for European Affairs and is known as the main web source forinformation about the EU in the Czech Republic. Euroskop provides up to date information about the activities of EU institutions as well as member statesof the EU. Euroskop also provides daily news about the European Union.In 2008, the website established a special division called EU Law Monitoring, which monitors the European legislature, and has monitored it from the beginning of its implementation into the Czech law system. The network of 13 regional Eurocenters organizes seminars, public debates and conferences following up on European issues and discussing topics associated with the European integration. Eurocenters provide added value mainly through their coverage of Czech regions reflecting on the regional information needs of particular target groups. Eurocenters cooperate with institutions throughout the Czech regions; especially with offices of local governments, universities, groups of interest and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Regional coordinators also give free public lectures introducing students to the issue of the European Union taking place in both high schools and secondary schools throughout the Czech republic. The final element of the ISS is the Eurofon whose employees provide information about the European Union, the membership of the Czech Republic to the EU, and the EU structural funds and grants to the general public on a free hotline 800 200 200. Based on the Government Resolution No. 1088 of 21st December 2015, the Integrated Information System is closely cooperating with the Ministry of Regional Development. The Ministry participates in the development of the Eurocenters and the Eurofon. The close link between both organisations has developed a good information service in the field of fundsand grants.
