EARTO Press Release Welcoming KETs HLG Final Report

Press Release

Brussels, 29 June 2015

EARTO published today a press release welcoming the final report from the European High-Level Group (HLG) on Key Enabling Technologies published on 24 June 2015.

EARTO congratulates the European Commission for having supported this effort in the last years as well as thanks the EARTO members CEA, Fraunhofer, IMEC, TNO, VTT and their industrial partners involved in the making of this report with the European Commission. Although the report finds that significant steps have already been taken, it also puts forward very concrete recommendations to increase the exploitation of KETs in Europe to allow European industry (large and small) to face the increasing competition coming from other regions of the world.

In particular, EARTO would like to highlight the first three recommendations of the report in which RTOs will have a large contribution:
1) Boost European Technology Infrastructures to Support Industry,
2) Strengthen KETs Pilot Lines & Demonstration Activities,
3) Unleash Significant Investments into Manufacturing through new EU Tools

Accordingly, today EARTO members are offering their continuous support and capabilities to continue further efforts on those key priorities with the European Commission, European Parliament, Member States and Regions for the benefits of their relevant European industrial partners (large companies and SMEs).
