Orgalime Annual Report 2017
28 May 2018
The Orgalime Annual Report is now available online, providing a comprehensive overview of our work in 2017. The central theme is transformation: the European technology industries we represent are undergoing a profound transformation fuelled by digitisation and data – and this change is unfolding at a time when Europe’s society, too, is in flux and facing a host of new challenges.
Many of these societal challenges can only be met by deploying the innovative products and systems designed and built by leading European tech firms – across areas as diverse as energy, transport, healthcare and the circular economy. But to enable our industry to maximise its contribution to Europe’s economy and society, Orgalime is convinced that a new approach to industrial strategy is needed at EU level: an ambitious, long-term commitment to creating an environment that will strengthen investment in these innovative new technologies here in Europe.
The Orgalime Annual Report details how we promoted this objective in our work throughout 2017: from industrial policy and digitisation, to energy and environment policy to the Internal Market, and from trade and legal issues to R&D&I.
