Europump is partnering with the European Valve Association (CEIR) and the European Compressed Air Association (Pneurop) at their respective annual meetings next year in Brussels.
Running across three days, from 9 to 11 May, the three organisations will deliver a Joint EU Policy Conference.
In updating its New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it relies on industry to deliver on the major challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe - sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, as well as the need to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.
The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in spring will build on the capability of European industry to design and produce the building blocks of the twin green and digital transition.
At the same time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not always support the freedom and flexibility needed for companies to grow and compete globally.
In support of the new EU legislative cycle, Europump, CEIR and Pneurop will gather to address all these aspects.
The joint conference will consist of a policy panel debate between industry executives and EU officials and MEPs, and three technical parallel sessions addressing topics of relevance for the three industry sectors.
