what we do

Profile & Mission

i24c, the Industrial Innovation for Competitiveness initiative, is a platform dedicated to developing and promoting an industrial strategy that secures European industry’s competitive advantage through innovation.

Today’s European economy is being shaped by global technological, social and ecological mega-trends. By 2050, it will become carbon neutral. This transition challenge offers many opportunities, but these will not be realised without a modern industrial strategy focused on innovation. In developing ideas for this, our mission is to strengthen Europe’s industrial leadership in this new world economy.

i24c was set up to develop evidence to inform the critical debate on these issues in Europe. We work to co-create effective and socially fair solutions with a wide range of partners.

Our activities are guided by a High Level Group of prominent leaders from government, business, academia and civil society. The initiative is powered by the European Climate Foundation.
