Since the very first hours of the Covid-19 crisis, European industrial clusters have shown an extraordinary capacity to spot the needs, adapt and react to address this extraordinary challenge. Thanks to their collaboration, solutions were found to address supply chain disruptions. Also following a callfrom the European Commission, the European Cluster Alliance mapped production capacities in Europe for medical supplies with the view to support the matching between demand and supply in the best and most efficient way.
The work of the European Cluster Alliance can be an inspiration for economic reconstruction in the aftermath of the crisis. The European Commission would like to further share, take stock and discuss this experience with the wider community of industrial clusters and beyond.
