If you or your organisation want to help shape the discussion on European industry and industrial policy, curating and hosting a local event at the EU Industry Weeks is a great platform. The EU needs an active and engaging dialogue with industry players to achieve the transition to a digital, greener and more resilient European industry. Be part of the discussion by curating and hosting a local event during the EU Industry Weeks 2022.

The EU Industry Weeks is a collaboration between the European Commission and stakeholders of European industrial ecosystems. Companies, entrepreneurs, organisations, national ministries or other industry stakeholders can curate and host their own local events across Europe as part of the official EU Industry Weeks programme. The European Commission will select local events through this call for expression of Interest.

EU Industry Weeks is a wider framing of the EU Industry Days, bringing the discussion to the local communities around Europe. Industry stakeholders will organise local events across Europe in January and February 2022.

  • inclusion of young (below the age of 30) speakers/panellists/other roles.
