Regional innovation ecosystems are the key to higher competitiveness and strategic autonomy of European industry

The EU needs a strategy that can help industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reach climate-neutrality at the same time as helping to recover from the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic.
