How and where can I travel while staying healthy? Re-open EU provides information on the various national restrictions in place, including on quarantine and testing requirements for travellers and mobile contact tracing and warning apps across Europe. This EU app also provides an overview of the health situation in European countries, based on data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). This should help you plan your travel in Europe, while staying safe and healthy. The EU is making major efforts to overcome this pandemic, to protect citizens and their livelihoods. The information is updated frequently and available in 24 languages.
While the European Commission seeks to keep the information up to date, we take no responsibility of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness and accuracy of the information provided or individual decisions based thereon. Due to the frequency of updates, aimed at offering relevant information at all times, this tool relies on automatic machine translations. We apologise for any inconvenience and we strive to continuously improve the user experience.
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.
Invasive Alien Species in Europe
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.
The Innovation Radar is a European Commission initiative to identify high potential innovations and innovators in EU-funded research and innovation framework programmes.
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.

The EU Login app is developed by EC DIGIT.D.3 to facilitate your day-to-day authentication. Once you have registered your device with your EU Login account, authentication can be done with just your PIN code when accessing EU Login protected applications using the app via your mobile browser.
EU Login can also be used as a second factor authenticator if an application requires it.
Don't have WIFI or Internet access? Don't worry, you can generate a unique code via the QR Code scanner.
Designed for delegates, event invitees and the general public, the EU Council app will give users access to information on events and meetings taking place in the Council buildings in Brussels and Luxembourg. The app will include details about meetings (time, venue and agenda) and practical information for attendees (accreditation, transport and opening hours). Maps will help users in finding their way to the building, the meeting rooms and other facilities (coffee facilities, toilets, delegation offices, etc.).
