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.
FAQ2 – Who has a profile on EurActory?
You can find anyone working in the EU institutions on EurActory, as well as a number of key lobbyists, analysts or other stakeholders working on EU policy.
Currently, the team behind EurActory has integrated the information available on the European Union’s Whoiswho website, enriched with the core community of readers of the EU news & policy debates website, EurActiv.com.
Users can enrich their profile by connecting social media such as Twitter and/or LinkedIn.
Our software also ‘crawls’ Twitter and LinkedIn, gathering the most useful and up-to-date information about public figures (without infringing the privacy preferences of such figures).
In time, EurActory will be enriched with a number of open-source databases on EU policy making, such as the lobbyists’ Transparency Register.
