Advanced Technologies for Industry

Scaleups have been found to drive innovation and investment activities and are also key to foster the digital and green transitions of our times. Over half of the high-growth startups implement digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence or Big Data. Yet in the EU, scaleups in general face a number of constraints, which are hindering their development.

In this context, the specific objectives of this analysis have been to:

  • Map the different challenges that technology scaleups face
  • Identify policy approaches and measures that have been deployed in support of technology scaleups in the EU
  • Discover and analyse any policy gaps in support of technology scaleups and provide recommendations for future policy actions.

The report is structured into a first section identifying the key policy challenges, a second section analysing policy responses, strategies and policy initiatives at EU, national and regional level and a third section including a summary of the findings and recommendations.
