Make Europe more competitive

The Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) covers a wide range of important European Union policy fields. From making our industry more competitive, developing an ambitious European research, innovation and space policy, setting the rules for telecommunication to fostering digitalisation and making energy more sustainable while keeping it secure and affordable, the ITRE committee is at the top of the EPP Group’s political agenda.

The EPP Group works hard to keep energy prices down while at the same time improving energy efficiency and increasing the share of renewable energies to make our energy system more sustainable and resilient. Europe and its industry must become more competitive and innovative and become a true leader in modern digital technologies. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are particularly important to us. With our SME Circle, we aim to make sure that European policies do not bring disproportionate burdens to small companies, one of the true backbones of our economy.
