Help our research

The EU Profiler is not only a tool that helps the user to discover their political preferences. In addition to this, the consortium that runs the EU Profiler will use the user data for scientific purposes and academic studies. By taking 5-10 minutes to answer this extra questionnaire, you will be making a valuable contribution to our research activities. Obviously, all of your answers will be treated anonymously and will be exclusively used for scientific purposes. For more details see the general terms of the project and the EU Profiler description.
