The European Aerospace Cluster Partnership (EACP) is a network of European aerospace clusters. Its main objective is to initiate an active exchange of information and knowledge between all partners and to develop and realize concrete steps for long-term trans-national cooperation between clusters and companies for a stronger and more competitive European position in the world aerospace markets. The ABROAD project aims at supporting the first implementation, testing and further development of the EACP joint internationalisation strategy. ABROAD therefore proposes a programme that will deepen existing links between EACP and foreign regions with the determination of inserting European SMEs in international value chains by supporting the fostering of new international businesses or the emergence of international R&T cooperations.

Partnership other activities: 

- Development of a cluster-level frame of collaborations with 6 international target regions (those targeted by the joint EACP internationalization strategy).

- SME-level tangible actions (such as trade missions, BtoB meetings and participation to road-shows), benefiting from cluster-to-cluster collaborations.

- Key international opportunities shared with EACP clusters members, and invitations to international partners to participate to European events, to maximize the impact of actions on European SMEs.

- Open on complementary horizons and build cross-partnerships collaborations, at cluster level and for clusters members.

- Maximize the EACP International part by federating a wider audience and by creating synergies with additional sources of funding for internationalisation activities.

- Promote the ABROAD activities and EACP Internationalization to the regional and cross-regional authorities, in order to bring together more important and sychronized internationalisation efforts.
