The Future of Industry in Europe - Challenges and Instruments for Local and Regional Authorities

02/05/2017   | Industrial policy  | 14.30 - 18.00 | Room: JDE 52 |  European Committee of the Regions


This workshop will debate the main challenges and instruments for industrial modernisation from a regional and local perspective, and aim to identify the key gaps and opportunities on which policy could focus.
Member States and the European Commission are showing renewed interest in charting a strategic vision for European industry. Regions are key stakeholders in this debate. By developing and expanding its knowledge-intensive and technologically advanced manufacturing sectors and boosting digitalisation, Europe can enhance its international competitiveness and generate badly-needed new sources of growth and jobs. Regional eco-systems are crucial in this.
Interpretation will be provided in FR, EN, DE.

Webstreaming will be available.
