Driving Innovation and Industry in Europe

The Employers' Group believes that a paradigm shift in the form of the digital transformation is sweeping across Europe and that it will affect industry, business and citizens alike. The EESC Employers' Group, in close cooperation with the Cambridge Network, has agreed to hold a seminar in Cambridge to exchange views on Innovation and Industry, and on the merits of business, industry and academia working together in Europe to prepare for the new post-industrial society. Cambridge was chosen as the venue for this event because of the overwhelming presence of high standard research and education; Cambridge is thus a real European – even global centre of excellence.

We see the format of the meeting as a questions-with-extended-answers, interactive discussion between a select number of panelists and the audience, made up of Employers' Group Members and Members of the Cambridge Network.
