Commission launches the resilience dashboards: a new digital tool to help EU countries monitor their resilience | EU Commission Press
Today, the Commission is launching an interactive website to navigate the resilience dashboards, a set of indicators and information on resilience in Member States and non-EU countries. The dashboards were first announced in the Commission’s 2020 Strategic Foresight Report, focused on resilience as a new compass for EU policy-making. Developed in cooperation with Member States and relevant stakeholders, these dashboards help countries, and the EU as a whole, to identify their capacities and vulnerabilities when it comes to navigating their economic and societal transitions, while coping with challenges and potential shocks. Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič, responsible for Interinstitutional Relations and Foresight, said: “The resilience dashboards are where strategic foresight and policy meet – and I invite policymakers to make the most of them. They provide valuable forward-looking and holistic insights into capacities and vulnerabilities, helping us shape our decisions in a way that will strengthen resilience in the EU and in our Member States. Importantly, the dashboards will also contribute to measuring our economic and social wellbeing, by going beyond a conventional GDP approach.” The dashboards take a forward-looking perspective, as the selection of indicators takes account of megatrends likely to have a significant impact on the EU’s future. They are also holistic, as they span four interrelated dimensions: social and economic, green, digital, and geopolitical. The 2022 Annual Sustainable Growth Survey, published last week as part of the Autumn package, mentions the potential use of the resilience dashboards in the upcoming country reports in the European Semester.
