Made in Europe: What are the challenges for the manufacturing industry in Europe

Le 9 mai 2022 de 10:00 à 12:00


The Covid crisis has revealed the hyper-dependence of European industries on supplies of materials, components and sub-assemblies from other continents. If Europe wants to become competitive again and remain an industrial continent, it must clearly define its ambition, its identity and its values. Competitiveness, sovereignty, agility... are part of the objectives to be achieved. Made in Europe focuses on the Twin Transition (green and digital). This will have a strong impact on the means and methods of production in all sectors. CIMES mobilizes the partners of its European network in order to shed light on the « Made in Europe » ambition and to present the guidelines and roadmaps that have led to European innovation funding programs. The round table (in English) will allow participants to understand the levers and master the keys that lead to the Industry of the future.
