    Communication activities

    We publish research for our clients, undertake client projects and organise events and meetings with policy makers. Our events are considered a useful forum allowing for a discussion between industry players and policy makers.

    Other activities

    We do not actively participate in any EU structures or platforms. We follow EU developments, and our engagement with policy makers is purely for the purposes of information, to help our clients understand any potential impact on their business. We are hiring interns, one of whom will start on 8 April 2019 until 5 July 2019. We are still looking for another intern.

  • Meetings


    1 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
