DIGITAL: The digital transition of European businesses and society, which is strongly interlinked with the green transition, is one of the main priorities of the European Commission and offers great possibilities to boost Europe’s competitiveness. Dr2 Consultants has built solid foundations in terms of expertise in digital policy and its network by providing support to a wide range of stakeholders from local start-ups and public institutions to European associations (Ecommerce Europe) and large corporations.

TRANSPORT: While the COVID-19 crisis has presented unprecedented challenges for the transport sector, it also demonstrated the crucial role transport plays to ensure an uninterrupted supply of goods and services across Europe.The recovery of the transport sector will be used to pave the way for a resilient, reliable and sustainable sector at the heart of the European Green Deal. In this challenging context, Dr2 Consultants is ready to respond to client’s needs from all transport modes. Leveraging on our diverse portfolio of clients and extensive network of stakeholders, Dr2 Consultants has developed concrete expertise in connecting policy trends to business opportunities, allowing us to set the right conditions for your business to grow.

Thought Leadership

Part of our mission is to connect companies and organizations with EU policy initiatives that are shaping the future society that is digital and sustainable. In 2021, Dr2 Consultants organized webinars with distinguished policy-makers, think tanks and industry representatives and launched its dedicated Fit for 55 services, which offer targeted solutions to navigate the evolving policy environment at EU level and anticipate the impact of the Fit for 55 package proposed by the European Commission. In 2022, Dr2 Consultants is celebrating its 10th anniversary and on this occasion we plan to organize a series of events and launch our trend report that looks back on the development of the EU policy in the last decade and reflect on the vision how it would evolve in the coming ten years.

Finally, the Dr2 Academy offers a curriculum of tailor-made EU Affairs trainings and one-on-one coaching sessions to help organizations navigate the EU maze and empower individuals to operate effectively at EU level.
