Silesia Automotive & Advanced Manufacturing
The Cluster "Silesia Automotive & Advanced Manufacturing" is an initiative of the Katowice Special Economic Zone for the purpose of automotive and advanced manufacturing industries and their cooperatives. Our vision is to establish the silesian and opole region as the mideuropean centre of automotive competence. The main target of "Silesia Automotive & Advanced Manufacturing" is to build a strong platform of exchange and cooperation between companies, science and education institutions.
In 2018 we will focus our actions on two key theme groups: (1) human resources and labour market and (2) new materials and engineering development. We plan to publish cyclical analysis, conduct workshops involving HR managers, Production Managers, Technicians and outside specialists, organize information exchange and problem solving meetings, and to support developing projects.
We believe that thanks to this new form of cooperation, the automotive industry in the silesian and opole region can achieve much more. The main benefits of being a member of Silesia Automotive & Advanced Manufacturing are:
- faster verification of outside signals
