Ahead of เกจวัดแรงดัน and Joint Conference with CEIR and Pneurop in Brussels this May, Europump president Vanni Vignoli seems on the EU’s roadmap for industrial support.
Vanni Vignoli, president of Europump.
Following its announcements of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has further indicated that it’s going to rely fairly heavily on trade to ship on the major challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and world competitiveness, as well as the necessity to overcome the disaster provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is basically building on the aptitude of European industry to design and produce the building blocks of the dual green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not always support the freedom and adaptability needed for corporations to grow and compete globally.
The European know-how industries, and particularly our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for an extended time thought-about the enhancement of their international competitiveness within the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of energy effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has provided increased alternatives and brought new challenges, including debates on the suitable regulatory stage (sharing of commercial knowledge, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and trade in the EU work increasingly more intently to design and deploy methods that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be the subject of the preliminary debate kicking off our Joint EU Policy Conference, which can convey together key coverage makers from the three EU policy establishments in command of the Industrial Strategy and three Executives representing and illustrating the achievements enjoyed, and challenges nonetheless confronted, by these three key sectors of business.
Specific Technical and Policy Issues

As the regulatory panorama throughout Europe, and indeed the entire world, becomes ever more advanced, the burden on business solely increases. It subsequently falls to sector particular commerce organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to establish and advise on these technical and coverage points most relevant to their respective sectors. In our explicit area, that relates, of course, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related equipment – a huge and necessary subset of business, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of many primary considerations when determining the core themes for the joint conference was to take care of a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to highlight how, along with the importance for firms to deal with technical features impacting their every day business operations, they contemplate the constructive position of business in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the periods may have a technical theme matching the most appropriate UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical specialists from trade and/or research institutes, they will each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, because it pertains to pumps and pumping techniques within the following key areas:
