VDMA in Brussels
VDMA’s office in Brussels bridges the gap between business and politics. The association informs its member companies about political developments that affect mechanical engineering. For policymakers in Brussels, the European Office (EurO) is a reliable point of contact with in-depth knowledge about the mechanical engineering industry to ensure that lawmaking does not happen in isolation from the real world in which companies operate.
The EU-Commission convincingly underpins its ambition to coordinate efforts in Europe with the “Coordinated plan for Artificial Intelligence”. However, the VDMA demands a clearer focus on industrial applications.
With the new research framework programme from 2021 to 2027, funding might be distributed according to the watering can principle. However, a targeted programme for key technologies would be important.
Bureaucratic hurdles for the posting of workers are a burden for the mechanical engineering industry. In Brussels, the VDMA discussed possible easements in the posting of employees with representatives from politics and industry.
Europe has moved a small but important step closer to the Digital Single European Market: on 4 October, the European Parliament adopted its report on a Regulation for the free movement of non-personal data.
With the European Office, the VDMA and its experts represent the mechanical engineering in Brussels. Do you have any inquiries or comments? Give us a call or send us an e-mail - we will be happy to help you.
