Rebooting Europe's High-Tech Industry

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 | 6 - 9 pm

Please join us to hear from a panel of distinguished experts who will share their experience and insights into the future of Europe's High-Tech Industry.

Europe's global competitiveness depends on a vibrant high-tech sector. Technology plays a crucial role for nearly every industry, particularly as machines and products get smarter and intelligent networks that coordinate the efficient use of resources spread rapidly. A healthy high-tech sector is an engine for innovation that can give European companies a leg up in a highly competitive environment.

Yet, as research from A.T. Kearney over the past few years has demonstrated, Europe's high-tech industry is declining. Europe's representation in the global ICT industry is low, even as the continent accounts for one-quarter of the industry's global sales. Only nine of the top 100 ICT companies worldwide are headquartered in Europe, a number that has dwindled in recent years in wake of both M&A and faster growth by Asian and U.S. companies.

Nonetheless, Europe has its brightest spots in business-to-business (B2B) and in some smaller sectors. Companies, often "Hidden Champions", have carved out niches and fight hard to sustain them. However, they often lack resources and scale to expand their scope and become top-100 high-tech firms.

We would like to welcome you for an engaged discussion about the future of European High-Tech and in particular, what the European Community at Silicon Valley can do to bolster its development.
