The European Commission called into life industrial alliances as a tool to facilitate stronger cooperation and achieve key EU policy objectives through joint action. The industrial alliances are voluntary initiatives and bring together a wide range of partners in a given industry or value chain, including public and private actors and civil society. They work to make European economies more resilient, ensure the global competitiveness of our industry (including SMEs), support a successful transition to a carbon-neutral continent by 2050 and make Europe fit for the digital age. Concretely, they are created around zero-emission aviation, raw materials, solar photovoltaic, clean hydrogen, batteries, circular plastics, industrial data, semiconductor technologies, and renewable and low-carbon fuels.

The European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, organised the EU Clusters Talk “Industrial Alliances: Joint action for a green and digital Europe” on 25 October 2023, 8:30 – 10:00 CET, to learn about the work of this initiative and discuss how clusters can get involved.

Speakers included:

  • Szilvia Szekely, DG GROW, European Commission.
  • Aleksandra Częścik, DG CNECT, European Commission.
  • Matilda Axelson, DG GROW, European Commission.
  • Jean-Pierre Lentz, DG DEFIS, European Commission.
  • Laure Baillargeon, DG GROW, European Commission.
  • Michal Kubicki, DG MOVE, European Commission.

This event is part of regular online meetings brought to the cluster community by the European Cluster Collaboration Platform. They offer up-to-date insights into the latest industrial policies and clusters’ involvement, projects, and best practices, the latest ECCP news, and funding opportunities. The EU Clusters Talks are a space to exchange knowledge and to discuss cluster-relevant topics, which will change with every meeting.
