Use the Event content type for publishing an event on the European Commission website, or to let an event appear in the Commission website events' list view, linking to an event site or page outside the Commission website.


  • site: the Event type must be used to publish contact details about an event

  • other EC branded websites: implementation and use of the event contact content type is recommended if the site hosts a significant volume of relevant content


If you need to create and add an upcoming or past event to the European Commission website, consult the content types guidelines.


Events are displayed in the European Commission website's list view and can be simultaneously displayed as a related event on a generic Commission website page, department page, topic page, policy page or research area page.

There are three states for an event:

- future

- live (via web streaming)

- past

Add information manually to the Event content type, according to the state of the event.

By using the Event content type, you can display an event's agenda and location, as well as upload multimedia relating to the event.

Use before and after event features such as featured image or video, date and time, location, speakers, agenda (travel timeline), registration link, registration deadline, scribble, social media profile, organiser, website, contact, summary, multimedia library and publications.
