Global Aerospace Cluster (GAC) Summit 2021

5th GAC Summit

The global aerospace community is alive and kicking!

The 5th EACP Global Aerospace Cluster (GAC) Summit successfully gathered 51 participants from all over the world on Thursday 14th October. The European Aerospace Cluster Partnership invited cluster managers from all five continents, exchanging over the changed tasks for cluster managers in the Covid-19 pandemic and the opportunities ahead.

The whole exchange was built upon the expert interview of Dr. Astrid Hintze and her scientific research “Regional clusters in the Corona Pandemic. A cluster management perspective”. The global #aerospace community, which was connected either with morning coffee (the meeting began at 6am in Seattle…) or with an after work beer (…and at 9pm in Tokyo), enthusiastically discussed the scientific findings.

Bringing together participants from Canada, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore as well as Europe is one of the proudest achievements of the European Aerospace #Cluster Partnership (#EACP) and showcases how deeply interconnected the aviation industry is. It was a pleasure and delight seeing so many “familiar” and “new” faces again, even if only virtually!

We are looking forward to gather the GAC community again at the next Farnborough International#Airshow, continuing tightening the ties and synergies in the #aviation environment.
