Ukrainian Cluster Alliance and EIT Manufacturing collaborate
Budapest, Hungary, 20 August 2022
As a union of Ukrainian clusters, UCA has a focus on industrial and high-tech clusters. Activities at national level cover all main Ukrainian industries and are strongly oriented towards internationalisation. As of July, the Ukrainian Cluster Alliance united 37 cluster organisations with more than 1900 enterprises.
Initial online meeting as a starting point
In a first online meeting with 25 participants from innovation and automation manufacturing companies, Dr Christian Bölling, Director of EIT Manufacturing Central had the opportunity to introduce EIT Manufacturing to the audience. There was a big interest from participants. After this initial meeting, there will be another at the end of August, so that questions can be answered.
Network partnership for win-win situations
The agreement of the network partners involves a number of activities such as joint events, communications as well as collaboration in identifying funding opportunities for projects.
Partnership started with networking in Vienna
Olga Trofymova, Cluster Manager of Ukrainian Automotive and Mobility Cluster, joined the UCA and took the responsibility for internationalisation and international relations.
