NEW publication: How to tackle challenges in a future-oriented EU industrial strategy?

June 2019, 

CSIL authored a study looking at how the goals of the recent Communication by the European Commission on "Investing in a smart, innovative and sustainable industry - a renewed EU Industrial Policy Strategy" could be achieved in short to medium term. The research, requested by the ITRE committee of the European Parliament,  has a particular focus on the current and expected challenges for EU industry and the current political context.

CSIL, with the contribution of CERPEM, addressed the general research questions in a detailed manner, allowing a comprehensive analysis of the different elements of the new EU strategy on industrial development. Results suggested that even though the EU industrial strategy is still a "meta-policy", it successfully promotes a more integrated and innovative approach. However, it should more clearly identify mission-oriented strategic goals and mobilise the necessary effort and means to reach them.

The study is available on the European Parliament's website.
