EU Community & the EurActory
EurActory is a new and free service developed by the EU Community project. EurActory scans the growing amount of information about people involved in EU policy making. It analyses and ranks the information, identifying the relevant experts.
EurActory already monitors hundreds of policy stakeholders. The ranking relies on various parameters like claimed expertise, experts’ assessment, organisation reputation, position level, network analysis, historical influence and will also consider feedback gathered during offline events and evaluation of written production in the next update coming soon.

In order to contribute to a balanced debate and to be able to identify different contributors, three categories of users have been created: Influencers, Analysts and Institutional. The ranking gives the same weight to the three categories to make sure that neither institutions nor lobby groups are over proportionally represented in the ranking.
Transparency : 8 ranking criteria
The EurActory ranking is based on 8 different criteria. These criteria are both machine and user generated and take into account online and offline reputation factors.

A digital tool, only for digital savvy experts?
