The Industry 2030 High Level Industrial Roundtable was established by the European Commission in December 2017 to provide independent advice on future EU industrial policy action. It consists of 20 experts representing small and big businesses, traditional and disruptive industries, trade unions, the innovation and research community, as well as finance and academia.
In June 2019, after one and a half years of work, the group published its report with recommendations on future EU industrial policy strategy towards 2030.
The report (see below) sets out a vision of European industry in 2030 as a global leader, responsibly delivering value for society, the environment and the economy. Europe will build its competitive advantage on cutting-edge and breakthrough technologies, respect for our environment and biodiversity, investment in our people, and smart European and global alliances. Based on collaboration and our common European values, this new industrial model will help make Europe a role model for the rest of the world.
Turning the Industry 2030 vision into reality requires action and the collaboration of policy makers at all levels, industry stakeholders and broader civil society in Europe. The report identifies specific recommendations and game-changing actions that will help Europe better manage this fast and inclusive transformation, champion global competitiveness, and address social inclusiveness and values.
