Research and Innovation at EU Industry Days as a key enabler for green and digital transition

The European industrial strategy builds a business case for greener, more digital and resilient industry. R&I is a key enabler for the green and digital transition and can help strengthen the resilience of EU Industrial Ecosystems.

At the EU Industry Days (23-26 February), we will discuss how the new concept of Industry 5.0 can make these transitions a reality, while keeping the human and societal aspects at the core. We will also reiterate how the New ERA helps to speed up the transfer of research and innovation results into the real economy and how ERA Technology Roadmaps with Member States,  industry and other stakeholders will include R&I investment agendas from basic research to deployment. The aim is to link these roadmaps closely to the Strategic Research and Innovation Agendas, agreed with Member States and industry under the Horizon Europe R&I Partnerships and look at what steps the chemical industry is taking to achieve the objectives of the EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability adopted last year.
