It displays data from the air sensing networks that publish their data using Sensor Observation Services compliant with the INSPIRE Directive.
This app provides information about the protected areas of the Natura 2000 network. It allows users to send pictures collected in each site as well as an overall feedback about the protected area. Natura 2000 is the largest coordinated network of protected areas in the world. It stretches over 18% of the EU land area and almost 6% of its marine territory offering a haven to Europe’s most valuable and threatened species and habitats.

It's always been difficult to check whether the Council of the European Union has reached the qualified majority it needs to adopt an act. Since November 2014, qualified majority voting at the Council needs at least 55% of the member states comprising 65% of the population to be in agreement. Answering this question has just been made easy thanks to the Council's voting calculator app. In just a few clicks you can check the final result of a Council vote.
- Choose a voting rule
Most often, the Council of the EU votes by qualified majority but it actually uses four different sets of voting rules to adopt decisions. From a drop-down menu, you can choose the voting rule to run your simulation.
- Set the member states participating in the vote
Usually, all EU member states take part in a vote, however, the EU treaties foresee areas for closer cooperation and offer opt-outs in certain policies. In your voting simulation, you can exclude EU member states from taking part in the vote, if required by the rules.
- Set the votes for each country and verify the final result
Each country can vote in favour, against or abstain. By default, for each simulation all EU member states are marked as voting yes, so you only need to change the vote of those voting against or abstaining. The final result then shows you if an act can be adopted or not.
Play and learn online safety
You can now learn how to behave safely in the digital world by playing the Happy Onlife game.
This engaging game aims at supporting children aged 8-12 — along with involving their parents and teachers — in initiating active mediation of digital technology.
Quiz questions embedded in the game on use of the internet, social networks and online games are designed to prompt discussion between players and empower them to be responsible and safe when using digital media.
The game presents key messages about children's use, overuse and misuse of the internet, together with risks such as cyberbullying. It also presents simple and clear strategies of prevention, mediation or remediation of internet issues.
Smart Radio Monitor (SRM) is a European Commission crowd-sourcing project designed to gather and share radio spectrum data about mobile telephony coverage, WIFI channel occupancy, broadband and net neutrality connection tests.
Anyone with a recent smart phone (Android or iPhone) can download an app which will automatically record the characteristics of the signal they’re getting on their phone –WIFI, 4G, 3G, 2G or nothing - and test the latency, upload and download performance of their Internet connection with additional net neutrality tests they can select. This data is saved locally to the phone and can be sent back to the SRM research database. The aim is then to plot the aggregated findings on a map, in an interactive web site.
Use the European Road Safety App to find all important road safety rules before going abroad or while on the road in Europe. Entertain your passenger(s) with two fun games about road safety.
Road traffic rules in the EU (as compiled by the European Commission).
A selection of EU funded projects
The project collection is accessible via either a world map or a list of countries. It is the first Web app managed by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Budget, with contributions from other Commission departments.
Each featured project provides information on the concrete project results that contribute to improving the lives of people in Europe and everywhere in the world. The projects relate to fields from employment, regional development, research and education to environment, humanitarian aid, energy and many others.
The EU budget is made up of around 1% of the wealth generated by EU economies every year and goes to funding projects that Member States could not finance on their own. The Web app purpose is to highlight the effective use of EU resources that benefit the citizens.
The Web app is the result of a pilot project that is currently assessed for a further development. The app is available in English, for the time being, and it can be accessed with both desktop and mobile devices.

This app is developed by the Joint Research Centre, the in-house science service of the European Commission. Its aim is to enable the general public (amateurs and professionals) to receive and share information about Invasive Alien Species (IAS) in Europe.
Alien Species are increasing worldwide and are currently present in almost every ecosystem type on Earth. They belong to all major taxonomic groups, including viruses, fungi, algae, mosses, ferns, higher plants, invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. In some cases they have become invasive, affecting native biota.
Invasive alien species can transform the structure and species composition of ecosystems by repressing or excluding native species, either directly by predation, competing with them for resources, or indirectly by modifying habitats. The effects to human health include the spread of diseases and allergens, while to the economy there can be damage to agriculture and infrastructure.
It is estimated that 10-15 % of the alien species identified in Europe are invasive, causing environmental, economic and/or social damage.
NetBravo is a European Commission crowd-sourcing project designed to gather and share radio spectrum data about mobile telephony coverage, WIFI channel occupancy, broadband and net neutrality connection tests. Anyone with a recent iPhone can download the netBravo app which will automatically record the characteristics of the signal they’re getting on their phone – WIFI, 4G, 3G, 2G or nothing - and test the latency, upload and download performance of their Internet connection with additional net neutrality tests they can select.
This data is saved locally to the phone and can be sent back to the netBravo research database. The aim is then to plot the aggregated findings on a map, in an interactive web site (http://netbravo.jrc.ec.europa.eu/).
Furthermore, some of the most useful network tools are also included: LAN scan, SERVICE scan and Traceroute.
The app is free to download, does not contain any advertisements and it uses very little bandwidth and battery. The data is anonymised and will not collate or store any personal data.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
The App provides information on relocation to asylum seekers who are in clear need of international protection from Greece and Italy to another European state. The aim of this app is to help those who are already situated in Greece and in Italy with information on the relocation procedure and their rights and obligations when applying for relocation.
This app provides clear and concise information in various non-EU languages and also includes a section with FAQs. The information on the App will be regularly updated. The app is equipped with an interactive map, indicating the locations and the contact details of the various hotspots situated in Greece and in Italy. The app also contains videos showing success stories of people who have been successfully relocated to another European state.
