The second European Industry Day is coming up on 22-23 February 2018. The event will focus on actions to further develop industrial competitiveness in Europe and serve as a forum where stakeholders from a variety of industrial sectors, finance, research and innovation, public government and administration can showcase their activities, learn from each other, discuss cross-cutting issues and develop joint visions for the future.

The event will be three-fold

  • Stakeholder workshops on 22 February
  • High-level conference on 23 February
  • Various local, regional or national events under the 'European Industry Week' brand

The event will cover three thematic areas:

  • Industry and territory
  • Industry and people
  • Industry and technologies

For the stakeholder workshops, actors from any sector of industry, or the research and innovation community are invited to submit their proposals for sessions. Up to 15 workshops will be selected to be organised in Brussels. See the call for expressions of interest and submit your proposals by midday on 10 December 2017 (Brussels time).

For local events under the 'European Industry Week' brand, organisations, companies and public authorities across Europe can also submit their proposals. More information is available in the call for expressions of interest. The deadline for applications is midday on 08 January 2018 (Brussels time).
