Launch of the Re-Industrialise Flagship Programme
Industry is crucial to the prosperity of regions. However, industrial clusters are oftentimes very energy and resource intensive, with significant greenhouse gas emissions and a high dependence on resource availability. Shifting from carbon-intensive industries while ensuring a stable economy and secure jobs has become a more and more pressing issue within recent years. Transformation pathways need to aim at maximising economic, environmental and social opportunities while supporting innovative solutions at the interface of economic development and decarbonisation.
Industry regions with a high density of energy- and carbon-intensive infrastructures and operations and are among the EU carbon emission hotspots. This evening event aims to identify the key challenges and opportunities in policy, industry and within the start-up ecosystem to navigate the transition process towards a low-carbon economy.
Who should attend?
The event is intended for policymakers, cities, industry professionals and businesses that aim to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy. It will be a great opportunity to learn more on transition management by networking and participating in discussions with experts from varied backgrounds.
The Re-Industrialise evening event will take place at the Representation of the State of Hessen to Brussels, 21 Rue Montoyer, on 10 October 2018 at 17:00.
Please register individually for this event. Places are limited and registration is required.
