Against the backdrop of rapid and „disruptive” technological change, transforming value-creation chains and challenges in securing know-how, European and cross-industry solidarity is needed.
In preparation for the EUMICON Conference in the framework of the EU Council Presidency, a stakeholder initiative will therefore be started that attempts to define concrete answers and innovative solutions to strengthen resource-based value-creation chains „Made in Europe”:
- Which technologies and processes will shape our future?
- How do we secure the know-how for these future technologies?
- What role will mineral resources and intelligent materials play?
- What political, economic and scientific conditions do we need to create?
As part of four high-level workshops in Brussels, Stuttgart, Sofia and Vienna, relevant stakeholders from politics, science, the industry and civil society are invited to discuss innovative solutions using the design thinking method.
