In 2014, Insight EU Monitoring – or IEU Monitoring – had started as an e-mail-only service for those who need first-hand sources to verify regulatory decisions and documents debated and issued by the European Union and some global institutions.
In the beginning, we were focussing on issues such as energy, climate, and environment, adding the digital agenda later on, as well as Euro and finance, trade and commerce, and foreign and security policy.
It was only in April 2021, when we decided to extend our services to an online “platform of platforms” that is now reaching more than 10,000 users monthly, in more than 120 countries.
We are gathering original documents and policy positions on four major policy fields: business, digitization, security, and sustainability. Thus, we have created a relevant source of information for those users following political debates, trying to verify facts and figures, to map decision-makers and stakeholders involved, and to position themselves in the public discourse.
Although we are a commercial project, we also fulfill a public purpose:
Insight EU wants to improve multi-level and cross-institutional transparency of European and international regulatory policies.
To open our project for third-party support for this public purpose, we have opened a donation channel at our mother company, Comecon Media GmbH, based in Düsseldorf.
If you share and support our purpose, we shall be happy to talk to you about how we could be working together. For those users who want to donate immediately, we have created a donation channel on Paypal:
