Under the current geopolitical circumstances, some supply chains and production lines are suffering disruptions or are at risk of suffering them in the near future.
The European Cluster Collaboration Platform hosted the first episode of the EU Clusters Talks, on 16 March at 8:30CET, to exchange on the impact of the current geopolitical situation on the EU supply chains.
This meeting was an open forum to understand what is happening on the ground and explore potential actions from the cluster community. Where do we already experience disruptions of supply chains in the European Union? How critical are those disruptions? Where do we foresee disruptions in the short and long term? And how is the industry preparing?
To give us input for our discussion, we welcomed senior level experts to share their views with us:
- Maive Rute, Deputy Director General and head of the Task Force for Supply Chains at Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW), European Commission
- Daniel Cosnita, President CLUSTERO, the association of Romanian clusters
- Susanne Baden Jørgensen, Senior International Manager at Food & Bio Cluster Denmark, member of the cluster group at the Enterprise Europe Network
- Nina Hoppmann, Project Manager at European Clusters Alliance and team member of the European Cluster Collaboration Platform
Another EU Clusters Talk on supply chain was organised on 30 March 2022. Don’t hesitate to watch its recording here.
