Promotion of industry’s concerns and image
Industry plays a crucial economic role in France and in Europe. It is a significant creator of wealth and the main driver for progress and export activity. To ensure industry’s future, industrial policy must be seen as a priority both in France and in Europe.
The objective of Cercle de l’Industrie is to take part in the debate on definition and implementation of a competitive industrial policy.
Cercle de l’Industrie organises many events such as President’s meetings with political leaders, conferences, training and student forums, in order to create a dialogue between the major French companies of all industrial sectors and policy makers, but also to raise the awareness of young people about industry related issues.
Cercle de l'Industrie members have the opportunity to attend high-level debates with leading figues from French, European and international organisations (such as political institutions or groups, labour organisations, ...)
Cercle de l’Industrie regularly invites students from leading engineering and business schools to a working breakfast with the CEO of a major French industrial company.
The students learn about the day-to-day concerns of an industrialist in France, thereby improving their understanding of the strategic and economic challenges facing French industry, and helping them to position themselves in the job markets of the future.
Publication of European information
Following changes in European policies is key to influence the policy-making process, through timely and tailored actions.
Cercle de l'Industrie's members receive a monthly newsletter on the latest developments in the EU policy related topics such as internal market, competition, international trade, R&D and innovation, internal market and energy policies.
