Opportunity to join a Mission for Growth with Vice-President Tajani!
On 18 and 19 February 2014, Mr. Tajani Vice-President of the European Commission, responsible for Industry and Entrepreneurship will lead the European "Mission for Growth" to La Louvière (Belgium, Wallonia) with the aim of promoting business partnerships between companies in Wallonia and European countries that are active in priority sectors. The event is organized with the Walloon Ministry for the Economy with the support of Walloon Clusters and the local EEN partner (please see attached the draft agenda). This mission represents a real opportunity to foster cooperation between European clusters, and if possible beyond, as a means of supporting their internationalisation even if the mission is not organised outside Europe. This would help the SMEs that are associated with the clusters.
A call for expression of interest was launched to identify a European delegation composed of up to 30 representatives from cluster organisations that are willing and committed to participate in a cluster matchmaking mission to Wallonia (Belgium) in the field of:
- Aeronautics and Space;
- Mechanical industry: mechatronics, materials and surfaces of the future;
- Biotechnology, especially (Bio)-Pharma and Life-Sciences;
- Transport and logistics;
- Creative Industries;
