On 28 February, 400 participants, key industrial players, global trend shapers and high-level EU policymakers will take stock of what the EU's industrial policy has achieved and debate on the future of European industry in Brussels.
Europe's industry is strong. It has retained a leading position in global markets. But like other advanced economies it also faces major disrupting challenges: digitisation, energy and resource efficient technologies, a higher reliance on services.
Industry is at the heart of the Commission's political priorities, and all its policies are geared to support industrial competitiveness.
The event will open with a video message from Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen (Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness), and Commissioners Elżbieta Bieńkowska (Internal Market, Industry, SMEs and Entrepreneurship) and Carlos Moedas (Research and Innovation) will all participate in the event.
The event will take place in the Charlemagne Building (Rue de la Loi 170) on 28 February. Registration starts at 8.15, opening at 9.00. Closing at 19.00.
