Press release

                                        

At its annual network partners meeting in Brussels this week, EurActiv announced new partnerships with Italian publishing house Class Editori and Spanish news agency EFE. The partnerships were presented at a debate in the Brussels Press Club attended by EU officials, MEPs, embassies, regional representations, companies and industry associations.

In Italy, the publishing house Class Editori will launch a co-branded site “Class EurActiv” providing EU policy focused content in Italian, linked to the group’s political and financial daily publications Italia Oggi and Milano Finanza. Together they have a combined readership of more than 1.5 million.

In Spain, news agency EFE will launch a co-branded site “Euro-EFE EurActiv” providing EU policy focused content in Spanish, linked to EFE.com and EFE’s other thematic portals which have a combined readership of 2.75 million. The launch of the new partnership is timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Spain’s membership of the EU.

Announcing the media partnerships Christophe Leclercq, EurActiv’s founder, said: “Our newmedia partnership strategy improves on the network model founded by EurActiv years ago. We see an increasing interest from mainstream media in partnering with us to meet the demand for EU insight and analysis. These latest network partnerships enhance European coverage and impact at the national and pan-European level.”

José Manuel Sanz Mingote, International Director at EFE said: “We are launching the partnership with EurActiv as Spain celebrates 30 years in the EU. Our aim is to focus on issues that will shape the future and provide more in-depth coverage for our readers – not only in Spain but also Latin America. The transatlantic trade talks are a key topic, as is the Juncker investment plan for growth and jobs.”

Gabriele Capolino, Executive Director of Class Editori said: “Exchanging EurActiv content with Italia Oggi and Milano Finanza will strengthen our respective coverage of politics and finance for readers. EU banking regulation, the single market and the energy union are critical issues for Italian and multi-national businesses.”  

Germany’s Tagesspiegel, France’s La Tribune, Spain’s El Pais are content partners of EurActiv since 2015, joining The Guardian and a total of 10 national media with which EurActiv exchanges content on a regular basis. Read more on www.euractiv.com/mediapartners.
