ISOPA, along with 119 organisations, has co-signed a joint reaction paper to the Communication of the European Commission on “Investing in a smart, innovative and sustainable industry: a renewed EU industrial policy strategy”

 

A wide range of industrial sectors, 119 organisations in total, have come together to react to the key objectives and areas that should have been placed at the heart of an EU industrial strategy, taking the Commission’s communication as a starting point.

The co-signed document focuses on aspects that are crucial to a successful industrial strategy, such as a business-friendly environment and governance, skills and training, research and innovation, access to finance, the internal market and trade.

The Commission’s communication on a renewed EU industrial policy strategy has been widely welcomed as an important first step to put industry back on the political agenda and to provide a comprehensive overview of upcoming initiatives and measures related to industrial competitiveness.
