EURACTIV is a European media platform specialising in the online publication of articles focusing on European policymaking, founded in 1999 by the French media publisher Christophe Leclercq. It is present across 12 EU capitals.[1] [2]


With its main office based in Brussels, EURACTIV is one of a few media companies focused on EU debates discussed in Brussels.[3][4]

EURACTIV's articles focus on the pre-legislative stage of EU decision-making, with a team of translators translating up to 2,750 articles a year.[5][6]


EurActory is a tool developed as part of the EU Community project.[7]

EU Community was initiated by EURACTIV and is coordinated by Intrasoft. The project is co-funded by the European Commission's DG CONNECT. It won a Call for Proposals under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7).[8]
