Competitiveness in a digital decade - What policy mix for 2024 and beyond?

Please note that this event will take place in person only.


In 2024, the European Union stands at a critical juncture as it navigates the challenges and opportunities of the green and digital transition. In supporting economic growth and recovery, the EU encourages reforms and investments that strengthen the cohesion and competitiveness of its economy.

Europe’s economic output determines its strength, resilience, and global standing. Digitalisation, free competition and investments have the potential to create an ideal environment for a thriving, open and secure economy.

In light of recent geopolitical events, potential global supply chain disruptions also need to be addressed. To do so, the EU is actively working to build a resilient ecosystem that can withstand external shocks, ensuring the stability of critical supply chains. Close cooperation with key international partners, particularly in the United States, is essential for tackling global challenges and staying at the forefront of innovation.

Join this Euractiv Event for a cross-sector conversation on the potential to unlock the EU’s green and digital ambitions and make it more competitive, sustainable, and innovative. Questions to be addressed include:

- What are some common factors across different sectors that determine EU competitiveness? What are some of the dependencies between these sectors?
- How can the EU leverage digitalisation to enhance its economic competitiveness in the global landscape?
- How does the economic security strategy tie in with the EU’s industrial policy?
- How can the EU’s industrialisation efforts bolster domestic production capacities, reducing reliance on external sources and enhancing economic security?
