In 2012, the EU’s Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI), based in the European Economic and Social Committee, celebrated its 10th anniversary. For a body which came into the world after a difficult birth and with uncertain prospects, this is no mean achievement.
The conference on ‘The CCMI: a decade of industrial change in Europe’ took place in Brussels on 12 June 2012 to mark this anniversary.
But more importantly, the event was an opportunity to bring together people from all parts of the industrial scene, not only to bear witness to the CCMI’s achievements up to now, but also to map out the future course for an organisation which, in view of the crisis that continues to damage Europe’s industrial base, is more necessary than ever.
