EFFRA & the Vanguard Initiative signed a Cooperation Agreement on the 25th of November, during the Vanguard Initiative Annual Political Meeting 2021. 

Eddy Van Hijum, Chair of the Vanguard Initiative, and Željko Pazin, Executive Director of the European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA)  by signing the cooperation agreement have officialised the already ongoing collaboration. The strategic cooperation will be focused on 4 key areas:
