R&D and Innovation: Orgalim recommendations for the strategic planning in Horizon Europe and beyond to support the industrial transition in Europe

Published: 30 January 2020

Policies & Issues: R&D and Innovation

This paper outlines Orgalim's recommendations on the implementation of Horizon Europe, to ensure high impact and support the competitiveness of our industries. 

The world and the economy are undergoing an unprecedented transition. Yet, three main challenges must be considered to manage this evolution: 1) the technology challenge with shorter innovation cycles and a rapid digital transformation, 2) the sustainability challenge, including climate, energy and environment, and 3) the societal and economical challenges. 

To overcome these challenges, the paper identifies concrete research areas and holistic building blocks of competitiveness. These elements are, among others, improved access to technologies for companies of all sizes and regions, more agile and adaptative cyber-physical production systems, encouraging investments in innovative solutions created in existing companies as well as in start-ups and new ventures, and focusing on closing gaps between the actors needed for a circular economy.
