Research suggests users are interested in the EU's strategy, plan or policy on a specific topic. Content in the Strategy class on the European Commission website explains the European Union's overarching goals and helps users better understand how the European Commission approaches policy development and contributes to these goals; how priorities are set and how the strategy relates to the political priorities; how the policy decision-making process works. It covers achievements on policy, providing access to DGs' strategic and management plans. The detail on individual policies and policy actions is covered on DGs' sites. A corporate policy content type will ensure a coherent user experience.
The Strategy section on the ec.europa.eu/info site links to the 10 Commission priorities on the European Commission website (ec.europa.eu/info) and to Better regulation to encourage contributions to initiatives the Commission is preparing.
The class indicated in the header or footer of a Commission website links to its landing page. For example: Strategy.
As with other classes, the Strategy class architecture is based on research and analysis of top tasks, user needs,
organisational goals and analytics.
