What is EU Community?
EU Community lays the foundation of a new era in EU policy-making. We provide tools to help you identify credible experts and key documents.
Over the past decade, the introduction of new technology has spurred transparency and participation in EU policy-making. We publish, tweet or comment about it every day.
But this has also made the EU debate more disorganised. Our inboxes are overflowing with newsletters and email alerts. Our twitter feed get overloaded with opinions and links.
How to know what to read? Who to listen to?
EU Community is creating a series of tools and services to help you make sense of today’s EU policy-making.
It provides decision makers with better policy options by combining social media interactions, qualified contributors, document curation, visual analysis and online as well as offline trust-building tools.
These services are free to use and are open source platforms, open to reuse for app developers. They build on new technology to help you understand EU policy, focusing on two aspects:
- People: Who are the relevant EU experts? Who to listen to? Who supports what?
- Documents: What are the most relevant policy documents? What topics will emerge?
EU Community aims to make working life of EU professionals more productive. It provides the relevant information to grasp what others in the EU Community think. It will save you time.
Who is behind EU Community?
The project is initiated by EurActiv, coordinated by Intrasoft and executed together with consortium members: University of Aegean, Athens Technology center (ATC), I-Europa.sk, Fraunhofer, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC).
EU Community is co-funded by the European Commission’s directorate general for communications networks, content & technology, known as DG CONNECT. It won a Call for Proposals under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7).
