Every Friday, our senior analysts will share with you online their assessment of the latest developments, evaluate emerging and ongoing measures at EU and member state level, and consider what they mean for the EU's longer-term future.

At this Friday Update, EPC Director of Studies Janis A. Emmanouilidis and EPC Chief Executive Fabian Zuleeg, shared their analysis of the latest developments at EU level, including on COVID-19 and Europe's response to the ongoing crisis. They focused on the need for some form of European fiscal solidarity and the impact of the pandemic on the MFF negotiations, as well as on suggestions to adapt the Commission's original proposal.

EPC Policy Analyst Marta Pilati explained the political and practical implications of COVID-19 on the EU's budget plans drawing on her latest Commentary on the EU's multiannual budget in which she sets out the case for an emergency plan for 2021 and argues in favour of a postponement to the negotiations and an extension of the current MFF by one year as a second-best alternative.
