Volt Discussion Series: Europe as a competitive block

The world is a set of economic blocks that compete to be the strongest. Sometimes we are led to believe that Europe can't keep up. This begs the question, where does Europe really stand? In this episode of the Volt Discussion Series we will talk about the competitiveness of the European Union, when it comes to essential market elements such as innovation, technology, investments and the labor market. Where do we need to invest, to increase Europe’s strength as an economic block? Above all, how can we build a competitive economy without sacrificing European values? Join Volt Amsterdam to discuss the challenges we face and the opportunities we have to make Europe thrive. Together with Ger Baron (CTO Amsterdam Innovation Team), Gareth Davies (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) and Yvette van Eechoud (Directorate European and International Affairs).
