The third main objective constitutes a number of activities related to the continued internationalisation of the member clusters, their regions and resident companies. A crucial factor in this regard is the
development of a competitive aerospace supply chain in the EU. Specifi c problems faced by suppliers are to be monitored and integrated into the EU technology roadmap. In order to improve the EU’s global competitiveness in the aerospace sector, a strategic assessment of future technological fields as well as collaborations with strategic actors are planned. In this manner, EACP also supports the eff orts of other institutions such as ASD, ACARE, CleanSky, EASN, Sesare and EEN.
EACP also strives to improve international collaboration with partners from outside of Europe. Numerous partners from other parts of the world such as Canada, the United States of America, Brazil, Russia, Japan and China are involved in the international eff orts of the network. EACP supports company missions to and from these regions, partly within the European Cluster Collaboration Platform and the Mission for Growth Initiative as one of the European Strategic Cluster Partnerships.
