Mission Growth. Europe at the Lead of the New Industrial Revolution
The new industrial revolution should lead towards a more efficient and sustainable use of our resources. More in general, our economy as a whole is going through major transformations, with new production techniques based on digital technologies, advanced materials, key enabling technologies, space, robotics, renewable energy, recycling and reuse of raw materials.
Ways for a reshape of European industry to make it robust, sustainable, and growth-oriented were discussed at the high level conference "Mission Growth" in Brussels on Tuesday 29 May.
High-ranking speakers at the conference included the President of the European Commission José Manuel Durão Barroso, Vice President Antonio Tajani, Professor Jeremy Rifkin, several EU Ministers and industrial leaders. With this initiative the European Commission intends to launch a debate about new ideas for the growth strategy focusing on the real economy and industrial innovation in view of promoting a European leading role in the new technological development. This strategy should give concrete perspectives in terms of opportunities and employment for new generations.
