The 'Industry 2030 Roundtable' has presented the European Commission with its final report on the future of EU industry by 2030, outlining a vision for a European industry which leads on the global stage for the benefit of society, the environment and the economy alike.

Since the beginning of its mandate the Juncker Commission has provided the investment and policy framework needed for European industrial sectors to stay or become the world leader in innovation, digitisation and decarbonisation (see also the latest Commission factsheet on industrial policy).

The Commission proposed to set up the roundtable in the 2017 renewed Industrial Policy Strategy with the aim of providing independent advice on the long-term development of EU industry.

This report represents the results of their work over the past year and a half and offers recommendations on specific industrial policy actions. The recommendations provide useful input to the continuous work on a long-term industrial strategy. 

The Industry 2030 report proposes that the success of Europe’s industrial transformation should build on adopting breakthrough innovations, addressing climate change and focusing on the people and values that make Europe a role model for the rest of the world.  

It also recommends specific actions, including measures for innovation and technology take-up, the transition to a climate-neutral industry, strengthening our global competitiveness and focusing on people and skills.
