On May, 14-15th 2019, the cluster Pôle Véhicule du Futur participated in the European Cluster Conference 2019 "Connecting Ecosystems: Bridge. Inspire. Change." organised by the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union in Bucharest.
This event gathered among 400 cluster representatives of all EU countries meeting each other in B2Bs and conferences. The main topic of the event was “Connecting ecosystems”, especially when dealing with clusters’ actions on their local ecosystems, collaboration between clusters at the EU scale, digitalisation or links between different EU initiatives targeting clusters.
This event enabled Pôle Véhicule du Futur not only to increase its visibility on the international and European scene but also to represent the European Automotive Cluster Network for Joint Industrial Modernisation Investmentsproject from which it is the coordinator. Five other European automotive clusters participate in this project: CEAGA and CIAC (Spain), SA&AM (Poland), ACB (Bulgaria) and ACS (Serbia).
During the conference, the EACN project has been rewarded with the Award European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for Smart Specialisation Investments (ESCP-S3) of the Year 2019.
ESCP-S3 projects aims at participating in the implementation and fulfilment on the regional ground of the smart specialisation strategies. With this in view, EACN shares the goal to help SMEs in the Automotive in their industrial modernisation by promoting European collaborations on R&D or investments projects.
