On the 8 – 9 November, Clusters Meet Regions will take place in the regional capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, Düsseldorf. The event will encompass different types of sessions to facilitate discussions and an active exchange of knowledge on the role of cluster organisations in supporting twin transition processes, which will be the focus of this event. In this context, a site visit to ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe, which is currently working on the decarbonisation of steel production through the use of hydrogen, is also planned for the 9th of November.
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVES
To provide insights into the cluster landscape of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), the event will feature a keynote presentation and high-level panel discussions on ongoing transformation processes and the role of clusters and networks to set the scene for the event. The Minister for Economy, Industry, Climate Protection and Energy of North Rhine- Westphalia, Mona Neubaur, will participate in a high-level panel discussion along with other panel guests involved in the concerned transformation processes, such as representatives from the European Commission and German Federal Ministries.
In addition to presentations and high-level discussions, this event will offer different possibilities to learn more about the NRW cluster landscape through pitching sessions for NRW clusters and networks to present themselves. To increase the chances of meeting the right cooperation partner during the event, a matchmaking session is also part of the event.
