About the Event

The EU Green Deal represents not just an ambitious environmental plan but also a dynamic catalyst for technological innovation. Current strategies and technologies are propelling us toward the 2030 milestone — but what about 2050? The path to 2050 is steeped in greater challenges, and the answer lies in early stage, transformational technologies that will establish the EU as a global leader in technological innovation. The journey to 2050 demands not just evolution but also revolution in technological approach — investing in and nurturing these early stage technologies today is crucial for ensuring they are mature, scalable, and impactful by 2050. ​ 

In this event, Lux will spotlight transformational technologies across two key sectors targeted by the EU Green Deal — industry and transportation — and with regional innovation executives discuss maintaining a long-term vision in a macroeconomic landscape engrossed in short-term goals. Attendees of Lux Forum Brussels will:​ 

  • Gain insight on how the transformation of industry by the EU Green Deal alters the strategies and outlook of the manufacturing sector. 
  • Delve into the emerging technologies set to transform the EU’s approach to the EU Green Deal beyond 2030.​ 
  • Hear from innovation executives about their experiences in integrating transformative technologies into their existing operations and strategies.​

Retooling Industry: Manufacturing for the EU Green Deal

The ambitions of the EU Green Deal are poised to transform the technological makeup of European industry. Manufacturers that have supported the successful rise of the region must now evolve their organizations in an EU Green Deal world. Policies promoting decarbonization and material circularity will inevitably lead to stranded assets — or will they? Mastering strategies to future-proof operations and the workforce will become increasingly important. 

This presentation will draw on insights from leading manufacturers, highlighting their biggest challenges, and outline strategies necessary to thrive through the transformation of industry.

Taking Flight: The Future of Aviation in Europe

European airlines account for nearly one-third of all airline passenger traffic in the world. However, the future of short-haul flights in the region faces intriguing challenges due to Europe’s extensive and efficient rail network. Amid this, the aviation industry is embracing the promise of low-carbon fuels, yet Europe is uniquely positioned for the next-generation of aviation with both electric and hydrogen-powered planes.

This presentation will delve into the cutting-edge aviation options, explore drivers and barriers, and offer a preview of the market outlook as developers look to shape the future of European aviation leading up to 2050.
