In practice this service provides members with regular updates on potential relevant funding opportunities including those offered by the European Commission as well as private funding schemes. These updates also include notices about impending competitions and calls for tenders. This service also provides access to information about members and their specialist interests and resources as well as information about the more than 1000 entrants to the MEDEA Awards since its inauguration in 2008. This database provides information about specialist centres of expertise all over Europe, pockets of innovative practice and experienced practitioners.
