Covid-19 Industrial Clusters Response Portal
This webpage supports the efforts of industrial clusters to address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 epidemic in Europe. Over 1100 offers from companies were already channeled to the European Commission via clusters with the support from the European Cluster Alliance.
This webpage has been created to facilitate the interaction of the industrial cluster community to allow fast and direct responses within the community itself too. Its objective is twofold:
- Serve as a one-stop shop where reliable information can be found on actions and decisions of the European Commission for industry and especially industrial clusters.
- Support an open discussion forum where actors can share their experiences, solutions, requests and questions
