The European Commissione has launched a new portal the Covid-19 Industrial Clusters Response Portal ( ) to support the efforts of industrial clusters to address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 epidemic in Europe. 

This portal has been created to facilitate the interaction of the industrial cluster community to allow fast and direct responses within the community itself too. Its objective is twofold:

·        Serve as a one-stop shop where reliable information for industry, and especially industrial clusters, can be found on actions and decisions of the European Commission and the EU Member States impacting on the functioning of the Internal Market.

·        Support an open discussion forum where actors can share their experiences, solutions, requests and questions

Demand from public authorities can be channelled to industrial actors through cluster organisations across the EU and beyond. Public authorities in need can send an e-mail to:
