What Participants Say
"GACC Midwest's Transatlantic Delegation trip on E-Mobility was a truly valuable experience for me. With Germany’s historical role in the automotive industry, there is a significant amount to learn from the German market about the future of mobility services and policies. I was very pleased with the quality of the program, events and background insights gained from my fellow delegates. The relationships that I was able to make with potential German partners and program participants are already proving themselves valuable.

The Transatlantic Cluster Initiative has provided us opportunities to accelerate our progress."
