European Union legislation influences the lives of European citizens and businesses every day. To make sure their voices are heard in political and legislative processes, professional and ethical representation of interests is of fundamental importance. At eacon, we support organisations in their interaction with policy makers in Brussels and across Europe.
Influence requires presence and visibility. To make sure organisations and companies without permanent office in Brussels can have a say in European legislative debates and are credible counterparts for policymakers, eacon offers various options for office representation in Brussels and other EU capitals. From our offices in the heart of Brussels’ ‘European quarter’ EU institutions and stakeholders alike are in immediate reach.
As economies and society digitalise, public affairs evolve as well. Digital Public Affairs allow to add a new dimension, using data and artificial intelligence, tracking political communication flows and reaching out via new channels to political audiences. Integration of traditional and digital advocacy increases success and impact.
Monitoring is the continuous observation and research of developments, decisions, topics and programmes that are relevant for an organisation. This includes providing and processing information and documents, as well as identifying communication channels and organisational structures. Tracking relevant discussions through early-warning systems allows to increase a stakeholder’s influence on political outcomes. Our EU information practice helps European institutions to disseminate information about EU policies and legislation to target groups across the continent.
