European Business & Innovation Centre Network

The European Business and Innovation Centre Network (EBN), an international non-profit association, was created in 1984 to co-ordinate the activities of EC Business & Innovation Centres (BICs). At present, EBN has over 240 members, including 155 BICs and 75 associate members in the 27 E.U. Member states and in 11 other countries (Central and Eastern Europe, Turkey, Canada, USA, Egypt, China…). Over the last two decades, EBN has become a reference point in Europe on innovation, spinoff, incubation, entrepreneurship, SMEs, and regional economic development.
As the official representative association for the 155 EC BICs, the Association's task is to promote inside and outside the European Union the development of Business & Innovation Centres. Therefore, EBN carries out four main activities:

  1. Institutional Representation
  2. The development of new tools and methodologies for members through European Projects and Thematic Networks including the BICs Creative Industries thematic network
  3. Technical Assistance and Quality
  4. Information, Communication and Networking
