As most EU Institutions take a summer break and the EU’s regulatory output drops sharply, our in-depth Insight EU Monitoring services will switch to a weekly frequency, until the last week of August.

Meanwhile, our Insight EU Portal and the daily Insight EU Digest are continuing their work, though also at an output level lower than usual.

Looking forward to seeing you again after the summer break.
