Mission

PromethEUs is an independent network of four Southern-European think tanks active in their respective countries and at EU level in the fields of economic, business and geopolitical research.

Its mission is to constructively contribute to the current European policy debate on the digital revolution by providing a perspective from Southern Europe. PromethEUs aims at being engaged in the debate surrounding the EU Institutions’ digital agenda, with a special focus on SMEs and citizens’ and employees’ skills.

The areas of AI, IoT, the usage of Big data, elements of the Industry 4.0 and the impact on current and future employment are already affecting business and economic activities around Europe. The challenges ahead are diverse and require a coordination of national and international policies. The network aims at creating a platform for exchanging ideas and actions that will highlight the main driving forces but also the barriers to tackle.

PromethEUs brings together I-Com, Institute for Competitiveness (Italy), EsadeGeo – Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics (Spain), IOBE – Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research (Greece) and Fundação Francisco Manuel dos Santos (Portugal).

The network will contribute tο the relevant public dialogue through publication of reports, papers and blog posts, workshops and public events in Brussels and in their respective Member States that will focus on related issues.
