Transatlantic Cluster Initiative
The initiative connects German and American cluster organizations through targeted events in the US and Germany. It establishes an exchange for best-practices focused on cluster management, internationalization, skilled workforce recruitment, technological development, and much more.
The continual growth of industry clusters in both the US and EU has contributed to a dynamic transatlantic economic landscape. To help further this transatlantic trade, investment and innovation collaboration, GACC Midwest organizes the Transatlantic Cluster Initiative.
The initiative connects leading German and US industry clusters to promote knowledge exchange through specialized, content-driven events.
It is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy through the European Recovery Program.
