Recent crises – from COVID and climate and energy and food supply – have highlighted the geopolitics of technology and Europe’s vulnerability in various sectors which are critical to its future. In parallel, they have underlined why the EU is working towards strategic autonomy and repositioning itself in a highly volatile world.
On September 5, an event will take place at Eindhoven University of Technology’s Opening of the Academic Year to address the theme "Contributing to Europe’s Technological Sovereignty". This public, livestreamed event features keynotes from European Commissioner Thierry Breton, the Netherlands’ Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, Micky Adriaansens and ASML CEO Peter Wennink, who will share their vision on the way forward. The contribution of the Netherlands to Europe’s agenda, in particular through the Brainport Eindhoven high-tech ecosystem, will be among the main topics discussed.
