Monitoring Advanced Technologies: European countries in the global competitive landscape

Online event

In the quest for resilience through increasing its strategic capacity, the EU needs to take more actions to defend its industrial competitiveness and also to emerge stronger from the COVID crisis. Globally, all economies today are ruled by the extremely fast development of advanced technologies. Europe’s industry has a global competitive advantage in high value-added products and services, and has strong innovation capacity. In this context, the ATI project investigated the performance of the EU and its industries in sixteen advanced technologies and compared it to the one of its international competitors such as the USA and China. This policy webinar discussed the results of the most recent analysis.

The event was a local event of the EU Industry Week 2021.
