Joint Paper: Setting indicators for an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy

The aim of this Joint Paper is to propose a short list of indicators that can be used to both assess the health of European industry and monitor the progress made by the EU on the implementation of its industrial strategy.

The indicator list is composed of two sections: the headline indicators and those linked to the pillars of the Joint Reaction Paper previously presented by Industry4Europe. The indicators are simple and intended to be applied in combination to answer specific questions that may be relevant for different scenarios.

Headline indicators for assessing Europe’s overall industrial performance:

  • Employment
  • Contribution to GDP
  • Industrial productivity
  • Investment into EU industry and within industry (R&D and modernization)
