The IRTC-Business workshop and Round Table on “Building resilient economies – the role of policy” took place via Zoom on November 17, 2020, from 2 am to 6 pm CET. Around 80 registered participants attended the workshop which comprised in a first part presentations from policy-making, industry and research on how more resilient economies can be built and supported. In a second part, the participants split in two groups, one with an industry and one with a policy focus on the topic. In both groups, an expert panel discussed questions surrounding the main topic from their respective views. Participants were able to contribute via a virtual whiteboard. In a follow-up event on December 11, the panelists and participants got the chance to discuss the preliminary results of the November workshop further. This report is a summary of the overall results of both events and can be found here.
