In June 2022, the Ukrainian government published a recovery plan for the country. Besides the main lines for rebuilding Ukraine, it describes economic challenges in energy, infrastructure, manufacturing, logistics, and closer business relations with the European Union. Ukrainian clusters and business have affirmed their economic capacities and their willingness to work on integrated UA – EU value chains. Ukraine can hold interesting business opportunities for European enterprises and clusters.
In this context, the European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, DG GROW, organised the EU Clusters Talk “Ukraine: How can clusters support business integration and recovery?” on 19 October 2022, to learn about the Ukrainian recovery plan, discuss project proposals with Ukrainian partners, and speak about collaboration opportunities between Ukrainian and European businesses and clusters.
This event is part of bi-weekly 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.
