The opening keynote remarks will be delivered by the Vice-President of the European Commission, Maroš Šefčovič who has placed Europe’s strategic autonomy in the spotlight of the political discussion.
The conference aims to discuss how strengthening the EU’s strategic autonomy can help lessen the effects of the COVID-19 crises with high-level stakeholders from politics, industry, NGOs and academia. It will bring the EU recovery program, circular economy, green transformation and the importance of resilient value chains for the European economy into focus. Other topics that will be touched upon are the need for increased quantities of mineral raw materials and how the EU must ensure the security of supply, which match the projected demand of the European industry.
This year it’s all about one question: How can we make Europe’s economy and industry more resilient?
