8th Round-table on Strategic Implementation Plan of the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials

Date: 08/11/2016

The round-table is organized by the EESC's Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI) in partnership with the European Commission as well as with relevant European – Euromines, Euracoal, IndustriAll Europe – and national organisations.

The round-table in Prague is following on a series of successful round-table discussions organised in 2015 in Spain, Slovak Republic, Romania and Finland and will be followed this year by round-table discussions in Ireland, Poland, Sweden and the Czech Republic. Raw Materials Initiative and the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials are key policies that may contribute decisively to maintaining the competitiveness and sustainability of European industry, and consequently, the maintenance or creation of new jobs, especially in regions that were affected by restructuring due to globalization.

The aim of the round-tables is to have a constructive dialogue with the national governments to stimulate investments and to develop measures together how to overcome obstacles and to assist the European Commission with the implementation of the European Innovation Partnership.
