As the global environment becomes ever more conflictual and shock-prone, the EU is seeking strategies to strengthen its economic competitiveness and technological edge.
In the wake of the Special meeting of the European Council and widely-anticipated Letta report, and ahead of the upcoming May Competitiveness Council on industrial policy, this conference aims to discuss the main opportunities and challenges going forward in the EU industrial policy and the strategic balance between protecting and promoting domestic industries.

The final programme for this event can be consulted here.

Participation is open to EPC members, invitees of the Permanent Representation of France to the EU, media, and EU officials.
