We are 
Our platform provides journalists with data and information on EU topics which concern people worldwide. As website operator the Datenfreunde GmbH (OpenDataCity) based in Berlin contributes public survey results and social media monitoring related to the EU subjects covered. Interested media are invited to use these tools on their own websites.

For this project the news agencies AFP, ANSA and dpa work together on the European Data News Hub (EDNH) with the aim of developing new ways of displaying and providing data-based news packages consisting of images, videos, radio clips, interactive graphics, information graphics and texts in five languages.

We aim to keep media and subscribers informed on EU topics but we also seek to stimulate discussion on the issues which are changing our world. These include environmental protection, migration and employment matters. The project receives funding from the European Commission but its editorial content is impartial. AFP, ANSA and DPA disseminate content via their networks and through numerous newspapers, television and radio stations worldwide. 
The German Press Agency dpa is a trusted, accurate and independent provider of news with the digital and multimedia content to power the media at home and abroad. Our customers benefit from the extensive global network of correspondents and editors maintained by Germany's leading news wire. News gathering is completely free of outside influence which in turn guarantees that coverage lives up to the strict requirements of the dpa charter: This document lays down that reporting must be free of bias and unfettered by political, economic or governmental ideologies. Print media, radio stations, online and mobile communication providers in more than 100 countries rely on this journalistic excellence around-the-clock. Among dpa clients are parliaments, governmental and non-governmental organisations as well as businesses and public relations agencies. They all derive news content from the wide range of products and services provided by the dpa group of companies.
AFP is a global news agency delivering fast, accurate, in-depth coverage of the events shaping our world from conflicts to politics, sports, entertainment and the latest breakthroughs in health, science and technology.
