Great news for transparency: the European Commission has setup a new website that allows querying all beneficieries of EU grants. It’s not perfect yet but it’s a huge step forward.

A while a ago I have reported about an earlier milestone in EU funding transparency, the public list of beneficiaries of EU agriculture funding. This time the Commission provides a central page allowing to query more than 10 billion € that are spent via funds and programmes of the European Commission.

Actually I found out about the new website via this new video on EUTUbe:

If one forgive’s the little problem that they forgot to put the URL of the website in the video I think this is really a great step about allowing people to know where EU money flows.

Here is the website:

Hint: check the “programme” box on the lower right corner of the search field to display details about the fund or programme.
