A New Industrial Policy for Europe

Conference - Brussels, Belgium

The role of industrial policy in boosting Europe’s economy and the strategies to pursue at EU level to promote national re-industrialisation

Several months after the European Commission’s communication on fostering a European Industrial Renaissance and immediately after the new college of European commissioners has taken office, the European Policy Centre (EPC) is organising together with the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) a high-level conference on the future of EU industrial policy.

This conference will present and debate the key findings and policy recommendations of the EPC Task Force on ‘A New Industrial Policy for Europe’. Based on a number of EESC opinions published on the issue and the work of the EPC, including its recent Discussion Paper, the conference will bring together high-level EU and national leaders, researchers, and business representatives to address the following questions:

  • What are the main factors challenging the competitiveness of European industry and should measures be taken at EU-level to tackle them?
  • What is the role of our industries in Europe’s recovery and of manufacturing in an industrial renaissance?
  • What should European and national authorities do and stop doing as part of a new industrial policy?
  • How do we develop a strategic vision of the future of EU industrial policy, and do national strategic choices need to be better coordinated?
Due to the limited capacity of the meeting room and a large number of already registered participants, registration is now closed. However, the conference will be live-streamed on this event website. For any questions please contact the INT Section Secretariat.
