Breakout / Working Group
german language

We live in a multipolar world. Asia is considerably gaining importance. Hong Kong, Singapore and China have further increased their economic attractiveness and innovation dynamics. The U.S. is also pushing re-industrialisation. Europe is facing an ever-increasing competition for highly qualified talents, research institutions and innovative enterprises.

How do Europe’s leading innovative enterprises cope with these challenges? How can they keep key R&D competences in Europe and which factors will help them to do so?
