The European Commission is forming a new Industrial Forum and calls for applications for the selection of members of the expert group.
The forum is part of the New Industrial Strategy for Europe. It is an inclusive and open mechanism for co-designing solutions with stakeholders. The task is to support the European Commission “in its systematic analysis of industrial ecosystems and in assessing the risks and needs of industry as it embarks on the digital and green transition, and the strengthening of its resilience.”
“The expert group will also contribute to the coordination of recovery efforts, as a forum for EU countries and industry to exchange best practices to transform industrial ecosystems.”
The Industrial Forum shall have up to 55 members from
A) Group C members
Industrial associations, NGOs, R&T organisations, trade unions and representatives of the financial and investment industries.
B) Group D members
National or regional EU member authorities.
C) Group C members
