ENRICH in the USA is launching the ENRICH in the USA Advanced Manufacturing-Focused Tour to assist European Union and EU-affiliate stakeholders interested in US-based business and collaborative partnership opportunities. This Advanced Manufacturing-Focused Tour, hosted by the Council of the Great Lakes Region, provides connections and information to help explore and identify transatlantic customer, supplier, and/or investment opportunities for visiting EU stakeholders within the advanced manufacturing industry in the binational Great Lakes region, North America’s economic engine. Tour participants will leave the five-day itinerary with a clear understanding of investment, incentive, and operational gains the Great Lakes region has to offer should they be interested in conducting and/or opening a local office for business.
The opportunities leveraged by the host ENRICH in the USA Landing Hub, will enable participants to experience a interaction with US-based government, industry, and research experts who share similar challenges and solutions within the advanced manufacturing industry. These 5 - day program will provide EU visiting stakeholders a deep understanding of quicker pathways to access US and Canadian business, regulatory and technological resources, ensuring a smooth internationalization of advanced manufacturing equipment, processes, and/or software technologies or businesses.
Located in the Buffalo-Cheektowaga-Niagara Falls metropolitan area and hosted by the Council of the Great Lakes Region, the Advanced Manufacturing Landing Hub provides European stakeholders unprecedented access to two national economies – the United States and Canada.
