EU Community will launch the beta version of its first, free service EurActory on 29 January at the European Parliament. But first, we explain the idea one ‘frequently asked question’ at a time.
FAQ6 – What is EU Community?
More and more people are engaged in the public debate, through a variety of platforms. This has broadened the conversation and spurred transparency. But policy makers are overwhelmed by the growing amount of press releases, reports, opinions, or tweets.
How will that work? The EU Community team is developing a series of services and tools to structure and visualise this information on people and documents.
All services are designed in open format and will:
- provide analytics and visual intelligence on EU policy making;
- allow you to grasp what others in the EU Community think;
- allow you to share your expertise with others more efficiently and openly;
- will save you time.
EurActory is a first tool in development; others will follow soon.
Combining community input with new technology, EU Community will make EU policy making more efficient, EU Community input more relevant and EU working life more productive.
