From the 6th to the 9th of November 2018, BILAT USA 4.0 will lead a delegation of American business associations, research and innovation networks, and cluster organizations to the European Union (EU). The 13-member delegation, representing organizations from nine U.S. states, will spend four days visiting over 15 cluster organizations in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
Participants will also have the opportunity to learn from peers and experts during a roundtable at BLOXHUB in Copenhagen. Held in collaboration with Cluster Excellence Denmark and International Cleantech Network (ICN), the roundtable will showcase EU-US cluster collaboration opportunities, success stories, and good practices for cluster management. The US delegation will have a chance to take part in a networking/matchmaking session with the European cluster participants following the roundtable.
One of the main objectives of the High-Level U.S. Cluster Mission to the EU is to support transatlantic cooperation for strategic Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) and business partnerships, and to support cluster organizations in the internationalization of their and their members’ activities, specifically focused on business cooperation, research, and innovation.
