ECIPE Webinar: Industrial Policy – Lessons from Past Experiences

April 22 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Sir Geoffrey Owen
Time: 10:00

Can a new industrial policy raise industrial competitiveness?

There is a revival of industrial policy in Europe. Ever since the global financial crisis, there has been talk in European capitals about taking a muscular approach to industrial policy – with the purpose of improving the competitiveness of some firms and some sectors. Berlin and Paris are now pushing hard for a new EU industrial policy. Meanwhile, the Biden administration has big plans for new industrial policies in the United States. The UK has also joined the fray. Please join us for a webinar with Sir Geoffrey Owen, one of Europe’s leading experts on industrial policy. We will discuss what lessons we have learnt from past experiences of industrial policy: what has worked and what hasn’t?
