The European Roundtable of Industrialists (ERT) was initiated in 1983 and is a forum bringing together around 50 Chief Executives and Chairmen of major multinational companies of European parentage covering a wide range of industrial and technological sectors. Drawing on the global experience of its Members, ERT identifies important issues related to European competitiveness and advocates how public policies at both national and European level could facilitate improvements.
