Have your say on Team Juncker’s performance and priorities for the next European Commission

In barely more than six months, voters will go to the polls to choose the next generation of European Parliamentarians – and likely determine who will lead the new European Commission. So, it’s a timely moment to take stock of how the current Commission has performed and consider the challenges and priorities for its successor.
 
With the launch of the European Commission Scoreboard 2014-2019 survey, conducted by leading communications agency BCW (Burson Cohn & Wolfe) and media partner EURACTIV, EU stakeholders will be able to have their say. The survey, which runs until 30 November, allows respondents to rate how current Commissioners have fared – including those who left early and their replacements. The survey can be accessed here.
 
The results and an analysis of the findings will be published in February 2019.
 
Karen Massin, CEO of BCW Brussels, commented: “Our survey is targeted to those who know the EU best, in Brussels and in the Member States. It will gather valuable insights from MEPs, national and European officials, trade associations, corporate representatives, media, NGOs, think tanks, academia and others. We encourage everyone to express their view – the survey takes just a few minutes to complete.”
 
Dan Luca, Senior Director EURACTIV, added: “With the European Commission Scoreboard survey, we are giving all EU stakeholders the opportunity to make their voices heard and influence the next Commission’s mandate and structure. The survey results will also serve to highlight recommendations for next year’s hearings for Commissioners-designate in the European Parliament.”   
 
The current Commission, led by Jean-Claude Juncker, has been in office during one of the most tumultuous periods in the EU’s history. During its five-year term, it has had to cope with a series of crises, from Brexit, to rising nationalism, banking collapses, the controversial appointment of the executive’s Secretary-General, and the running sore of migration. 
 
The survey covers a range of topics, including who the next Commission president should be, how effective the EU Chief Brexit Negotiator has been in handling the negotiations, whether the Commission should be led by a woman, if it should reflect the European Parliament results (the so-called ‘Spitzenkandidaten’ process), whether there should be increased gender balance and diversity, if the ‘Team Juncker’ policy cluster system worked, if there should be fewer Commissioners and what the EU’s top policy priorities should be.
