"The role of EURYDICE, the Information Network on Education in Europe, is to promote the exchange and the production of reliable and comparable information on education systems and on national policies in the field of education in Europe."

The Network of National Academic Recognition Centers (NARICs) lists all EU and EEA NARICs which are usually connected to government offices. NARICs are the official source for recognition of educational credentials between member states. However, most of them also deal with the evaluation of diplomas from outside the area for purposes of recognition.
