Dear Cluster Managers

We come back to you with a new cluster policy and matchmaking event that will be organised in Ukraine on 27-28 March that is promised to be very interesting for European clusters and brings a high number of international collaboration and business opportunities that are going to be presented by some 20 Ukrainian clusters in IT, Agri/Food, Eco-energy and Construction.

The event takes place in the context of the High Level Industrial Dialogue between the EU and Ukraine. The significance of a Cluster Policy and Matchmaking Event is high, because it is timely following the enforcement of the Ukraine–European Union Association Agreement. Up to Eurostat, in the first half of 2017, the agreement has already resulted in 23% growth in trade on both sides. Venture Capital Investment in Ukraine has increased 231% in 2017 compared to 2016, reaching a volume of € 216 million in 2017.  

The application process is still open to clusters and business organisations until the 23rd of February 2018.

Applications an be made at: https://survey.pwc.lu/EUUkrainecluster  

Important: For selected participants the attendance of the Cluster Policy Learning and Matchmaking Event is free of charge, travel and accommodation costs are covered.
