Description of the processing operation 
 
The EU&I 2024 platform  is a public and politically  independent party profiling website accessible at: www.euandi.eu. It aims to provide a service for voters for the European Parliament elections 2024 by providing transparency on party positions. EU&I 2024 is an online database designed for people who want to find out more about the political profiles of parties in Europe. The tool is based on 30 statements regarding relevant issues in view of the 2024 European Parliament elections, covering a wide range of contemporary policy issues and political values in European politics. Users will be asked to position themselves on the 30 statements.
