The updated EU Industrial Strategy of 2021 proposed the launch of dedicated transition pathways to support the green and digital transitions and increase the resilience of each of the EU 14 industrial ecosystems.
The Commission invites stakeholders in the the aerospace and defence industrial ecosystem – industry, associations, social partners, public authorities, and other organisations – to reply by 15 October 2023 to an online consultation . The consultation is based on a Staff Working Document ‘For a resilient, sustainable and digital aerospace and defence industrial ecosystem: Scenarios for a transition pathway’, listing existing possible areas of action and measures to support the green and digital transitions as well as the resilience of the aerospace and defence ecosystem.
Stakeholders are invited to provide an assessment of scale, cost, long-term benefit of the possible areas of actions, commitments and investments to accompany the transition. This is the first step to kick-start the co-creation process with stakeholders, which will result in a finalised transition pathway by the end of 2023.
The ambition is to help the aerospace and defence ecosystem embrace the green and digital transformation and strengthen its resilience to foster growth, quality jobs and competitiveness of the EU. This can only be achieved by the Commission services, Member States, social partners and other stakeholders acting together.
