Over the past 30 years, horizontal industrial policy was a no-go in the European Union. However, with the outbreak of Covid-19, this has changed. The EU has introduced several policy initiatives in recent years that focus on specific industries or technologies. This presentation provides an overview of these initiatives, and discusses their origins, rationales, and common characteristics. Furthermore, it raises the question of whether these initiatives will prove to be successful or not.
The seminar series is organised by the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw) in co-operation with FIW, the Centre of Competence in International Economics. The seminar provides a forum for presentation and discussion of recent academic research in the field of international economics.
