From the 6th to the 9th of November 2018, BILAT USA 4.0 led a delegation of American business associations, R&I networks, and cluster organizations in a mission to the EU. The four-day event was highly appreciated by the delegation which participated in a rich program of visits with over 20 cluster, government, and research organization representatives in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, and The Netherlands. The trip offered the US delegation the opportunity to learn about the role and operations of cluster organizations in the EU, gather insight into the EU RDI environment, and engage with peers and experts during a roundtable held as part of the event.
The 12-member US delegation represented 11 cluster-like organizations from 9 US states in the fields of clean energy, clean tech, sustainability, smart cities, and e-mobility seeking cooperation with clusters and others stakeholders of the RDI ecosystem in the EU.
