By studying the co-ordination capacities of several important EU actors (viz. three Member States, the Commission and the European Parliament), this paper seeks to address this apparent discrepancy between the horizontal aspirations of EU-EPI and what administrative systems are capable of providing by way of policy coordination. What emerges from the analysis is actually quite positive: it is possible to address the very ambitious EU-EPI agenda via network governance, but only if the need for adequate administrative coordination capacities is satisfactorily addressed.
