European Industry Day

Submitted by Alina Danieles… on 29 January 2017

The nature of industry is changing, driven by rapid technological change. The evolution of industrial activity is characterised by digitalisation, clean and circular technologies, and a higher reliance on services.

The European Commission - DG Growth fully supports its industry and makes a strong contribution to jobs and growth in Europe, by establishing industrial competitiveness into all our major policy initiatives from the Investment Plan and Horizon 2020 to the Single Market Strategy, from circular economy to Digitising European Industry. The strategic approach to industrial competitiveness aims to empower businesses, citizens and entire regions to be fit for the future.

With this in mind, the European Commission - DG Growth is organising European Industry Day to take stock of existing actions and stimulate debate on a joint vision for the long-term future of European industry.

  • What has been achieved by mainstreaming industrial competitiveness into EU policy?
  • How will people find their place in the new industrial revolution?
  • What is the role of regional ecosystems for industrial transformation?
  • What are the key technologies for the future of industry?

Please find more details on the event and registration here.
