Euralarm at European Industry Day

Written by

The European Industry Day was the occasion for a major conference held in Brussels on February 28th, with over 400 participants from all areas of Industry. The conference reviewed the current EU initiatives but also debated new ideas on a joint vision for the long-term future of European industry.

Euralarm President Enzo Peduzzi and General Director Glen Dale took part in an open discussion where many aspects of how to support Industry better were presented and discussed, including the impact of Digitalisation, Small and Medium Sized Enterprise (SME) access to technologies, industrial transformation in European regions, the circular economy and how to help SMEs grow through funding amongst other issues.

President of the EU Commission Jean-Claude Juncker opened the conference with a video message before handing over to Elżbieta Bieńkowska, the EUCommissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, to set the scene for a beneficial discussion on how to support Industry in Europe better. Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, EU Commissioner for Research and Innovation Carlos Moedas also gave insight supported by the many speakers from the Committee of Regions, The European Investment bank, European Parliament, Business Europe, the European Roundtable of Industrialists and the European Trade Union Confederation amongst others.
