CECIMO Director General joins the Industrial Forum

27 January 2021

We are delighted to announce that the European Commission has appointed CECIMO Director General Filip Geerts to join the Industrial Forum Commission Expert Group.

The Industrial Forum aims to support the Commission in its systematic analysis of the different industrial ecosystems and in assessing the different risks and needs of industry as it embarks on the twin digital and green transitions, and the strengthening of its resilience.

The Industrial Forum will also contribute to the recovery efforts, as a forum for EU countries and industry to exchange best practices aiming to transform industrial ecosystems. The forum will build on, contribute to and complement the work carried out by the COMPET Council and the High-Level Group for Competitiveness.

The Commission’s Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs has set up the Commission expert group “Industrial Forum” with a mandate until 31 December 2024 as a concrete tool to deliver on this ambition.

The European Commission will officially launch the Industrial Forum at the kick-off meeting in February 2021.
