On 10 September 2014 the President elect of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker unveiled what has been qualified as 'the A-team' whose members attended hearings with the European Parliament from 29 September to 7 October 2014 before a vote of approval on 22 October 2014. After a general introduction of the Commissioners appointed, which highlights a concentration of strong, varied competences, followed by an analysis of this innovative matrix organisation and the questions that this new structure raises, this study recalls the programme described in the roadmap of the members of the College.
