Call launched for a high-level delegation of European clusters to the US under the responsibility of inno TSD

From 15th to 19th May 2017, a High-Level EU Cluster Mission to the USA organised by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform and BILAT USA 4.0, seeks to support transatlantic cluster cooperation for strategic business partnerships. This mission organised as a follow-up to the EU-US Cooperation Arrangement on Clusters signed between the U.S. Department of Commerce and DG GROWTH of the European Commission.

As part of this mission, a U.S.-EU Cooperation Seminar and Matchmaking Event will be organised at TechConnect World Innovation in Washington, D.C. as a follow-up to the EU-U.S. matchmaking event organised at Hannover Messe in April 2016 with the aim to facilitate transatlantic linkages between European and US clusters and help SMEs find strategic partners.

This is a unique opportunity for European clusters looking to cooperate with U.S. clusters and networks, in particularly in Boston, Philadelphia and Washington DC, as the selected participants will visit cluster organisations and participate in networking workshops in these cities.  

The call for expression of interest was launched under the responsibility of Inno TSD, the coordinator of ECCP and partner in charge of cluster activity in BILAT USA 4.0. The aim was to identify a European delegation composed of representatives from cluster organisations from different industry sectors of common interest that are willing and committed to participate in this EU Cluster Mission to the USA.
