The European Plattform to set up new supply chains
Europe is facing a number of economic, environmental and social challenges, most notably the crisis in Ukraine, with businesses severely affected by supply chain disruptions. To address these challenges, the European Union (EU) has launched new measures to strengthen the resilience of the Single Market and build a sustainable, digital and globally competitive economy.
To address the current supply chain problems, the Enterprise Europe Network has established a „Supply Chain Resilience“ platform. This helps companies retain, re-structure or replace existing supply chains, as well as source raw materials, parts, components and/or (semi-)finished goods or services they need to keep production going.
The platform focuses on the following sectors:
- Energy-Intensive Industries
- Mobility, Transport, Automotive
- Raw materials
- Renewable energy
- Publish offers for raw materials, parts, components and/or (semi-)finished goods or services;
- Promote requests from European companies to sustain their supply chains;
- Match international suppliers with buyers of goods and services;
- Establish cross-border contacts between businesses, industries, support organisations, academia, important stakeholders and key decision-makers.
For humanitarian aid and support, the European Clusters Collaboration Platform (ECCP) has set up the “EU Clusters Support Ukraine Forum".
In this forum, information can be exchanged, offers of help can be registered, cooperations can be proposed and help can be requested to facilitate the procurement and delivery of urgently needed products. This includes food, hygiene items, medicines, as well as personal equipment to ensure survivability in war and refugee conditions, including shelter, clothing, bedding and shelter.
