The call for participants in the Young Leaders of Industry Forum is now open!

Do you have fresh ideas on how European industry can contribute to a better society and environment? Are you interested in an opportunity to influence policy, liaise with high-level speakers, pitch to stakeholders and meet fellow young innovators to share your ideas in an interactive environment?

Then this exclusive, career-boosting opportunity at EU Industry Days could be for you!

The European Commission is organising its first Young Leaders of Industry Forum as part of the annual EU Industry Days event, which will take place on 5-6 February 2019 in Brussels. The main aim of the forum is to attract young people and talents to industrial careers and engage them in discussion about the future of EU industry and its challenges today.

Within this two-day forum you will have the chance to take part in interactive discussions relating to the 3 thematic areas selected for EU Industry Days 2019, and be able to deliberate these key issues with high-profile industry leaders as well as with one another. You will also be given the unique opportunity to brainstorm creative ideas in an ‘innovation hack’ and present your conclusions to main EU Industry Days participants.

Sound interesting? If you are aged between 21 and 30 years old with relevant background knowledge, experience and a genuine enthusiasm for improving the future of industry, then apply via the call for participants until 30 November 2018.
