The EU gives a coordinated response to the new competitive challenges of the European shipbuilding sector.
The current Leadership 2015 initiative has been carried out in an effort to give a coordinated response to the competitive challenges of the European shipbuilding sector. It takes into consideration the high-tech nature of this sector and the substantial investments made by yards on research, development and innovation. This initiative has been created in 2003. However, in the context of the negative impact that the present crisis is having on the EU shipbuilding industry, a strong fresh impetus is needed which would identify new development opportunities especially in terms of innovation and technologies.
