EurActiv enjoys extensive political, NGO and press support. It is at the heart of the ‘Community of EU Actors’. This ‘Community’ includes several thousand European organisations and companies, many of which are currently using EurActiv’s services.

EurActiv’s coverage of EU affairs concentrates on policy positions by EU Actors trying to influence policies already in the pre-legislative phase, before a Commission proposal.

By providing links to the full text of these positions, EurActiv brings more visibility to the processes of influencing EU policies. We thereby open the EU policy debate.

Our aim is to deepen these debates, both within and outside the institutions as well as upstream of decisions. This is done in a transparent and effective way: fact-based, constructive and professional.
