Ceramic Days 2016

The 2016 Ceramic Days were held in Brussels, Belgium, from 29 November to 1 December. The objective of the Ceramic Days was to understand how labour and energy intensive industries can continue to contribute and further develop sustainable European jobs. The 17th European Parliament Ceramics Forum on 29 November and the high-level event on 30 November 2016 were open to the public and were both a great success.

The European Parliament Ceramic Forum (EPCF) met for its 17th plenary meeting in Brussels. The event was hosted by EPCF Chair MEP Inmaculada Rodríguez-Piñero, and attracted over 100 participants from EU institutions, the ceramic industry and other stakeholders. The EPCF was divided into two panels titled “Promoting green and safe jobs in a sustainable ceramic industry” and “For an ETS fostering low carbon innovation in European SME’s”.

During the closing conference of the 2016 Ceramic Days the panelists discussed how the ceramic industry composed mostly of SME’s is able to strengthen its leadership through investments and innovation. The high level speakers discussed the policies which can contribute to growth, investment and industrial policy.
