EURACTIV Network Projects

EURACTIV has competed successfully in EU open calls for tenders and calls for proposal since 2001. EURACTIV has won over 15 major projects from different EU institutions and supported a range of research projects focusing on communication and dissemination.

As the main pan-European media network specialised in EU policy, the EURACTIV network is a highly effective media multiplier, a natural channel to communicate EU policies and public projects to media, stakeholders and other multipliers at the EU and national level.

Current projects

Funding: DG AGRI, Grants for information measures relating to the common agricultural policy

As a recipient of the grant for the third year running, EURACTIV aims to provide information and create a debate on the CAP and agricultural policy in the EU. Using the EURACTIV media platform and its editorial services, the project focuses in particular in communicating the real contributions of the CAP to EU citizens’ quality of life and the implications of the CAP in four main policy areas: environment, energy and climate change; European agri-food quality; the social dimension and growth; the economic dimension and investment. The project is implemented in Brussels and in 11 other Member States: France, Germany, the UK, Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Greece, the Czech Republic, Spain, Italy and Portugal. The project in the latter three countries will be respectively implemented by media partners EFEAgro, Class Editori and Lusa.

Funding: European Parliament, Grants programme in the area of communication 2016-2019

Using EURACTIV’s pan-European network, the project’s objective is to engage younger audiences through media treatment of topics of interest to them (special focus on employment, education, politics, environment, research and innovation, migration, human rights) and show how the European Parliament has an impact on European youth. The project includes 8 countries where youth faces different challenges such as unemployment or migration.

Funding: European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, ICT 2014 – Information and Communications Technologies

The SSIX project aims at providing European SMEs with easy to interpret metrics to analyse and understand social media users attitudes for any given subject. These sentiment characteristics can be exploited to help SME’s to operate more effectively, hence resulting in increased revenues as well as improve their investment decision process. EURACTIV is the main dissemination partner which entails the development of a communication strategy to reach and engage relevant stakeholders.

Funding: European Commission, DG Research and Innovation, The Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities Programme

The aim of this research project is to conduct a comparative EU wide analysis of policies aimed at overcoming youth unemployment, assessing the effectiveness of relevant labour market and social policies. EURACTIV is the main dissemination partner of the project, ensuring editorial coverage on its main website of youth (un)employment policies and raising visibility of the project among policy-makers and stakeholders, as explained by Natalie Sarkic-Todd, EURACTIV European Network and Projects Director, in this short video.
