KETs: Time to Act - Final Report


The High Level Group (HLG) on Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) presented its  recommendations on how to boost the uptake of KETs in Europe at its final meeting on 24 June 2015. The experts recommend that European companies should be more ambitious and work on projects of a European dimension in strategic areas. It also sees scope to stimulate demand from the market for innovative products and services based on KETs, thus helping to meet some of the societal challenges in fields such as energy, climate and resource efficiency. The HLG  therefore recommends that EU policies such as the ones on energy, transport and circular economy are linked with KETs. The recommendations include a a set of concrete actions to ensure that the growth potential of KETs is not hindered by the lack of a skilled workforce.
