EU Industry Day workshop: 'Digital meets Energy Union meets Circular Economy'

22 February 2018

Industry Day

The 2018 EU Industry Day is set to attract leading figures from the worlds of industry and policy with a programme designed to spark debate on the future of European manufacturing.  

Orgalime's stakeholder workshop on the afternoon of 22 February will tackle three of the biggest topics in engineering and tech today: digitisation, the energy transition and the move towards a circular economy. Entitled ‘Digital meets Energy Union meets Circular Economy: what’s in it for Europeans?’, the session will showcase how investment into digital, low-carbon, energy-efficiency or resource-efficiency technologies can create new opportunities for citizens, employees and industry.

Innovative use cases from industry speakers will demonstrate how these transformative trends are already delivering benefits to Europeans – and an interactive panel debate will investigate how to maximise the opportunities on offer.

For those interested in finding out more on the views of the European engineering industries on the issues discussed during the workshop, the following Orgalime Position Papers cover all the key policy debates:
