President's cabinet[edit]

The President's cabinet supports the President of the commission, and thus has a very central role in coordinating the work of the European Commission as a whole. The president's cabinet is led by "Martin Selmayr, who has been widely described as "the most powerful EU chief of staff ever."[13]

Project teams[edit]

Juncker has for the first time proposed a commission that clusters certain members together under designated policy areas. These clusters are known as "Project Teams" and will each be headed by one of the vice presidents.[14] Each team is composed of a core membership in addition to members who may fall under its respective umbrella as needed.[15] Timmermans and Georgieva both oversee all commissioners while the remaining five project teams are as follows:
