Synthesis

James Webber introduced the panel members and the current importance of the topic, noting the large number of public consultations in the field over the past six months and other calls for changes, such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent CJEU case-law. A step-change in the role of State aid to support industrial policy is possible if strategic autonomy becomes a priority for the European Union. If we support building assets in the EU through subsidies, as well as sustainability, this will become much more controversial considering the different external trade agreements the European Union has concluded or is about to.
