EU Community

Yesterday was crunch time for EurActory, EU Community’s first tool to identify relevant EU experts.

EurActiv, partner in the project, held an event at the European Parliament dubbed #Media4EU. Suddenly, we found ourselves surrounding by 150+ potential users, eager to take a peek at the platform.

MEPs like Siegfried Muresan and Brando Benifei. Former EU Commissioners like Siim Kallas and Connie Hedegaard. Businesses reps like Karl Cox (Oracle) and Chris Sherwood (Allegro). Or media reps like Tom Weingärtner (API) or Max von Abendroth (EMMA).

All of them, and many others, in the room.

So we pitched them EurActory…




EurActory is now open for user feedback. Caution: it’s a beta! That means bugs may occur when you’re browsing the platform. But we wanted to open it up to users, get your input and make sure we shape the service to what you are looking for.

Visit the homepage. Type a search query and see what comes up. Read about how to get in the directory. And give us your feedback.




EurActory was initiated by EurActiv, is coordinated by the leading IT Solutions group Intrasoft and is developed by a consortium of eight organisations as part of the project EU Community (info).

EU Community is co-funded by the European Commission’s DG CONNECT under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7). Oracle is a Partner of this public-private partnership project.



The service will be continuously developed, as more and more EU experts and professionals discover it. The platform was released to get feedback from the community of EU experts, making future development open and collaborative.
