3 As a non-profit Association, EPA is investing in the future of Europe.
Our social contribution model is one of the core and most important functions. It is of great importance for us to develop a healthy climate and conditions that support a more practical education in technology and management of European projects. On the other side we invest part of the of the social contribution funds as reward for the best project of the year. In this way we support the practical approach and process of making the projects and project management activities especially the ones that are lead and managed via our platform.
4 As a Network EPA also works as a “virtual office”.
Citizens’ Digital Participation is usually seen as a tool of consultation or market research. This means that citizens’ opinion is not taken into consideration in order to understand their real needs, but only to see whether they agree with the policies proposed by the institutions.
Considering the new technologies as tools able to "increase the resources of citizens, promoting a greater propensity for active citizenship and participation” we base most of our activities on “MyEuropa” platform. A web based platform that is above all a working tool co-designed through involvement of different members, employees, providers and competitors. A place where ideas and best practices are shared and discussed.
The MyEuropa platform is in constant evolution thanks to the suggestions and involvement of the users contributing to its optimisation and growth.
5 Through Collaboration Agreements with relevant association private and public bodies (the European Academy for Education and Social Research; the International University Institute for European Studies - IUIES), the activities of EPA are in constant growth.
