In the aftermath of the pandemic, the European Union (EU) is drawing the first lessons from the crisis. "Strengthening the economic resilience of the European Union (...) and policy autonomy for key technologies and value chains are strategic priorities1". The draft Multiannual Financial Framework (2021-2027) 2 and the European Commission's "Next Generation EU" recovery plan3 are sized accordingly. The challenge is crucial: to accelerate the transformation of the European economy in response to societal and environmental challenges. The trajectory is clear: to resolutely engage in the transition towards a green, sustainable and digital Europe.
