In a workshop held at EURACTIV’s headquarters, EU experts gave their thoughts on making the data on EU affairs more accessible and making the process more efficient.
“The main opportunity that has arrised in the last years is the digitalisation of the information. […] All the information available is online and therefore you can access it – theoretically – from wherever in Europe,” said Doru Frantescu of the transparency organisation VoteWatch.
“Everything is available somewhere. You can reach it,” said Philippe de Buck, former director general of BUSINESSEUROPE, “but on the other hand, it is too much to be absorbed, to be understood and to be handled.”
This workshop was organised by EU Community, designing tools to help identify credible EU experts and key documents.
