Today, the Commission is hosting the 5th meeting of the Industrial Forum, which gathers experts who help the Commission implement the EU's Updated Industrial Strategy.
The Forum will be attended by the Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager. The event will focus on energy preparedness. Members of the Forum will discuss the emergency energy measures proposed by the Commission on 14 September and their impact on industry and relevant parties. They will reflect on how potential issues can be mitigated.
Today's meeting will take stock of the progress made in three of the Forum's five work streams, namely: strategic dependencies, investment needs and cooperation opportunities and advanced manufacturing. Next steps for these work streams will also be outlined. The event will also address synergies between Europe's defence industrial policy agenda and the work of the forum and will begin preparations for the next meeting, which will feature stakeholder representatives linked to the European Year of Youth.
The Industrial Forum gathers a wide array of stakeholders, including industry, NGOs, research institutions and social partners from different industrial ecosystems identified in the EU's updated industrial strategy with the aim of facilitating dialogue and coordinating advice to the Commission.
