rete-europea-comunicatori-FESR

INFORM is the European network of programme communication officers co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the EU Member States, and implements the regulatory aims provided for in Art. 117 of EU Regulation No.1303/2013, as further amended by EU Regulation No. 2018/1046.

Its main objectives are:

  • Ensuring the exchange of information on the results of communication strategies;
  • Exchanging experiences and good practices in the implementation of information and communication measures;
  • Coordinating communication activities between Member States and the European Commission;
  • Discussing and evaluating the effectiveness of information and communication measures;
  • Proposing recommendations to improve the scope and impact of communication activities and raise awareness of the results and added value of these activities.

The Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) of the European Commission coordinates the INFORM network, joins and contributes to communication meetings held at national level, and supports network members in implementing information and communication legislation.

Membership of the INFORM network is open to staff working on information and publicity issues with a managing authority or a joint technical secretariat (European Territorial Cooperation Programmes).

Within the INFORM network, the Territorial Cohesion Agency plays the role of “core member” and coordinator of the Italian network.
