07: Re-Industrialisation

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Industry is not only an important employer and driver of technological progress, but it also supports the service sector. For this reason, the EU promotes re-industrialisation with the aim of increasing the share of manufacturing in the GDP from 15,2% (2012) to 20% of GDP by 2020. This breakout session’s aim is to discuss the potential of a strengthened industrial sector in Europe. What has been implemented so far, how do industrialists and the general public perceive these efforts, and what are the crucial points in the light of developments such as climate change, new energy sources, globalisation etc.?
