Unlocking the Future

Welcome to ‘Unlocking the Future’, the EU Industry Days podcast series. Hear what industry insiders, civil society representatives, academics, and many others have to say about the trends, challenges but mostly opportunities that the green, digital, and resilient transition brings for European industry. This podcast paves the way for more focused discussions during the main Industry Days conference, THE place to discuss everything that matters for industrial ecosystems across Europe. With something for everyone, this series will answer the big question: What opportunities arising from the green, digital, and resilient transition, as well as from Europe’s young generation, can EU industry benefit from?
