Contribution to Draghi Report

Contribution to Draghi Report

On behalf of Brainport and the region Eindhoven, IDEA Consult wrote a positioning paper as contribution to the upcoming Draghi Report on the future of European Industrial competitiveness.

Mr Draghi (former President ECB and Prime Minister of Italy) is preparing a report on “The future of Europe’s Industrial Competitiveness”. This report is expected in June 2024 and, like the recent Letta-Report on the EU Single Market, it is expected to be very influential for the next European Commission’s Industrial and Innovation policies.

In February IDEA Consult supported Brainport and the region Eindhoven in drafting a ‘positioning paper’ as input to Mr Draghi as contribution to the forthcoming Draghi Report on the future of European Industrial Competitiveness with a focus on the important role of high-tech industries and new technologies to reinforce Europe’s industrial competitiveness and strategic autonomy. New technologies and high-tech industries are critical in the context of twin transition and strategic autonomy as they drive technological innovation, enable digital transformation, boost efficiency in existing industries, facilitate the shift to the use of renewable energies and the adoption of a circular economy, and they have a strong (and growing) contribution to economic growth and job creation.
