The European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP), a COSME project, has just launched the Covid-19 Industrial Clusters Response Portal to respond to and address challenges during the time of COVID-19.
What is available via the new portal?
This new ECCP portal will allow the existing industrial cluster community to come together and exchange quickly and directly. Via the portal, ECCP members will be able to share solutions, connect with others and support each other in response to COVID-19 challenges.
What are the objectives of this new portal?
This new ECCP portal provides a single point of access to information for industry on actions and decisions taken by the European Commission and the EU Member States impacting on the Internal Market. The portal also aims to facilitate an open discussion forum where actors can share their experiences, solutions, requests and questions.
What has been done so far?
- A recent call to increase production of medical supplies resulted in 1 100 offers from companies across Europe.
- Public authority demands have been included on the portal including:
- The public administration of Madrid needs medical material, the Madrid Automotive Cluster responded and is assisting the administration to match-up the offers and demands of the urgently needed medical material.
