European Commission (EU)

Connects experts in public policy

SINAPSE offers “tools to promote a better use of expertise in EU policy making and governance.” The platform is intended for use by experts, advisory bodies, and commission officials. SINAPSE allows users to join or create groups based on one’s field of expertise. The platform also requires members to use their real names in an attempt to “reproduce the way people traditionally exchange information.” However, users of the platform may also request confidentiality, and choose parameters for who has access to their published information.
