EURACTIV is an independent pan-European media network specialised in EU policies.
We spark and nourish policy debates among stakeholders, including government, business and civil society. We cover policy processes upstream of decisions, summarising the issues without taking sides.
The EURACTIV Network provides free localised EU policy news in 12 languages. Together with our media partners, we reach over 1.7 million users across Europe and beyond, every month.
With 2,5 million page views and over 1 million unique readers per month, EURACTIV is a leader among online media specialised in EU policy. We address 80% of our readers in their own language.
EURACTIV has an original business model, based on five elements (corporate sponsoring, Euractor membership, advertising, EU projects, and content syndication). It is well funded and the content usage is free.

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.
By providing links to the full text of these positions, EURACTIV brings more visibility to the processes 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.
EURACTIV cooperates with a number of national media, innovation companies and groups of readers to support transformations in the media sector on four fronts: Data Journalism, Translated Syndication, Media Policies (#Media4EU) and Media Networks.
