Succesfull General Assembly 2020
The European Aerospace Cluster Partnership (EACP) is a network of European aerospace clusters established in the frame of CLUNET, a PRO INNO EUROPE project that encourages the sharing of experiences and that supports the implementation of concrete projects regarding cluster innovation and development policies. Niedersachsen Aviation is one of the 24 founding members of the EACP. More information about EACP
"From 28th September to 2nd October the European Aerospace Cluster Partnership organised its annual General Assembly. Due to the unusual circumstances connected to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were forced to held the GA virtually, for the first time since the inception of the EACP network.
The Covid-19 crisis also challenged the aviation industry as no crisis before ever did. The working environment as well as product landscape is changing in order to better answer the new market demand. And so does the EACP.
Thus, we held our General Assembly, conform to the new working conditions. Instead of meeting for one and a half days at one of our cluster members’, we organized a whole week (!) of virtual events. 10 events spread over 5 days guaranteed that our 45 members coming from 18 European regions could work in intense workshops and webinars on the future of the aerospace industry.
With the participation of all 45 clusters to at least one event, we managed that for the first time in our history, every EACP cluster took part at the GA. This was also possible, thanks to our new implemented communication channels, which enable a much faster and agile communication. Such channels have been introduced during the peak of the Covid-19 crisis and are showing their full potential. Establishing reliable, quick, updated and easy to handle communication tools for information exchange, supports our members to its best.
