EACP General Assembly 2021

It is good to be back…in person!

After one and a half years of virtual communication and e-meetings via Skype, Zoom or MS Teams, the European Aerospace Cluster Partnership met (partially) again in person!

The EACP General Assembly, hosted this year by our great co-organizer Andrew Mair from Midlands Aerospace Alliance, took place in a hybrid format on Thursday, 21st October 2021. The one-day event near Coventry (UK) was attended by a small group of dedicated people as the majority of members was still hampered by strict travel rules due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, it was a great feeling to see well-known faces again in person!

Those who could not join us in Coventry took part in the discussions and call for votes virtually. Despite thousands of kilometers dividing the 41 participants from 31 member clusters, EACP managed to have a lively and open discussion on last year’s activities, internal organization topics and the future strategic outlook. We would like to thank all participants for their valuable input and collegial exchange!

We strongly believe that many more in person meetings will follow this first one, strengthening the ties between European aerospace clusters and fostering the growth of EACP.

The next EACP GA will take place on October 27th and 28th in Naples, Italy, hosted by our friends from Distretto Aerospaziale Campania (DAC). We are looking forward to meet, once again, in person there!
