The Interest Representation during the Coronavirus Crisis (InterCov) Project set out to assess the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on interest representation and political advocacy.

In this report, we summarise important descriptive patters in the data collected through a cross-country online survey, which we conducted in June and July 2020 in nine European countries (Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, France) and at the EU level.

In the report, we discuss initial findings on six questions that we expect to be of interest to both interest organisations and scholars alike:
- Did Covid-19 change the involvement of interest organisations in decision-making and public debates?
- For whom did access to policy discussions change under the spread of Covid-19?
- Who faced mobilisation problems during the Covid-19 crisis?
- How did lobbying intensity on different Coronavirus-related policy vary?
- How do organisations perceive their impact on crisis management policies in Covid-19 times?
- What potential insights we can use to develop sustainable advocacy and public affairs strategies in the near future?

These findings were also communicated in a series of Zoom Events for survey respondents and other interested parties in October 2020.
