The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically building on the capability of European trade to design and produce the building blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that doesn’t all the time support the freedom and flexibility wanted for corporations to grow and compete globally.
The European expertise industries, and specifically our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a very lengthy time considered the enhancement of their international competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of vitality effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has offered increased opportunities and introduced new challenges, together with debates on the appropriate regulatory level (sharing of business knowledge, synthetic intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
