In the framwork of the Europe 2020 strategy, the EU Committee of the Regions will hold a conference on the European Commission flagship initiative "An industrial policy for the globalisation era".


It will be the third conference in a series of seven, which highlight the role of regions and cities in Europe's growth strategy. Addressing representatives of national, regional and local public administrations, business organisations at EU and national level, as well as experts from the European Commission, networks and associations, the event will take stock of the implementation of the flagship initiative at regional level with a focus on two aspects:

  • re-industrialisation as a challenge for regional transformation;
  • smart regions and cities supporting cluster development and industrial competitiveness.
