On 29 January, EurActiv's flagship innovation project EU Community, presented the beta version of its first tool: EurActory.

More and more people participate in debating Europe: online and offline, on social media, in blogposts, in reports or at conferences. Today’s EU policy makers are overwhelmed with information from civil society, business representatives, lobbyists or think tanks. How do you know who to listen to? How do you know who matters most to you?

EurActory is a new and free service, developed by EU-funded project EU Community. 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 will tell you who the most relevant experts are, and what you need to know about them. You will be able to browse experts by policy area or dive into specific profile pages.

The EU Community project is initiated by EurActiv, coordinated by Intrasoft and executed by the consortium members University of Aegean, Athens Technology Center (ATC), I-Europa.sk, Fraunhofer and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC).
