Joint European Industry Position Paper on Governance


On the 3rd July 2018, the new Joint Paper on “A Governance Structure for an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy” was published. The joint position paper is co-signed by 122 member associations of the Industry4Europe coalition.

In the aftermath of the two previous Industry4Europe Joint Papers “For an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy: Going further” (October 2017) and “Setting indicators for an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy” (March 2018), this new Joint Paper aims at proposing a governance structure which enables the implementation of an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy, based on an informed dialogue between the industry, decision-makers at EU, national, regional and local levels and the Civil Society.

More specifically, a future Industrial Strategy governance structure should be based on the following two pillars:

  1. Ensuring an informed and permanent dialogue between the industry and policy decisionmakers in association with civil society stakeholders (trade unions, consumers organisations, NGOs, academia) and;

  2. A structure of European Institutions which allows for an Industrial Strategy to be addressed and implemented at highest level.
