Even the most optimistic of observers recognise the coronavirus pandemic as one of the greatest challenges the EU has ever faced to its capacity to manage crises, muster solidarity and demonstrate supranational added value.

Drawing on the expertise of researchers in the EPIN network, Sophia Russack and Steven Blockmans asked how EU cooperation was perceived in their respective national contexts, via an expert poll. Nineteen institutes from 15 different countries, plus Iceland, responded to their call. The introduction and analysis below reflects the unique insights that were gleaned from this exercise.
