Transatlantic Cluster Insights | Volume 3 | April 2017

It’s German Cluster Week. 

Presenting diversity and strength of the German cluster landscape is the aim of this Cluster Week. This event concentrates on the importance of research and innovation in clusters as well as their outcome on the regional economy and for Germany as a whole. Clusters from a variety of sectors offer networking events and best practice exchanges during Cluster Week.

GACC Midwest's Transatlantic Cluster Initiative offers you insights into key topics in the lightweighting industry such as materials performance, joining technologies and recyclability. Join our next study trip to Germany in June.

Reach out to us with your regional industry focus, so your cluster can be included in the transatlantic dialogue.

Enjoy our third issue of Transatlantic Cluster Insights.

Kind regards,
