Before the start of a new political-institutional cycle, is the moment to consider the EU’s future strategic priorities. But in a world dominated by profound regional and global uncertainties and risks, enormous distributional consequences deriving from the fundamental polytransition that Europe and the world are facing, and the increasing pressure to agree on complicated political trade-offs, the next EU leadership will struggle to define, let alone deliver, an ambitious set of policy priorities needed to adequately address the European and global Zeitenwende in the coming years.

In this context, and in light of the developing ‘permapolycrisis’, Europeans will have to act collectively and effectively in their response to the radical change we are witnessing. To do so, there is a need to innovate the relationship between member states and EU institutions, recognising that this new era will necessitate a higher degree of coordinated executive
action at the EU level.

To achieve this objective, this Discussion Paper recommends eight structural innovations aimed at ensuring that the EU27 will be able to effectively respond to the manifold unprecedented challenges EUrope is and will be facing.
