To a large extent, the efforts of the INTEREURO team to date have been directed to building the large, integrated dataset on lobbying in the EU as outlined in our proposal, founded by the European Science Foundation and several national foundations. An overview of all the data-collection projects as well as the overall methodological and theoretical underpinnings has been published in a special issue of Interest Groups & Advocacy.
In the last part of the INTEREURO-project we surveyed the entire European interest community. For this we tested and fine-tuned a web-based questionnaire. More than 2000 organizational representatives were invited to take part in the survey. In the end we received more than 720 complete responses (36%).
