All EMCC pages have the same basic structure. At the top-left of the screen the EMCC logo will always bring you back to the home page. Likewise, the Eurofound logo in the upper right-hand corner will always bring you back on the main Eurofound page; EMCC is a Eurofound project.
Just below the Eurofound logo, the buttons for search, site map, help and contact appear on every page.
This first item on the left hand menu gives background information on the Observatory's role, target group and outputs.
