The idea laying behind the Info-days is to regularly update the general public and, especially, journalists on the current situation in the EU and the state of affairs in the relations between the Union and Russia. In order to provide the information on the institutional and political reforms in the EU, launching of the new EU projects and programs, the EU-Russia summits etc, the Info-days take the form of a briefing for journalists, businessmen and NGOs.
