The European Business and Innovation Centre Network (EBN)

Created in 1984 to co- ordinate the activities of EC Business & Innovation Centres (BICs). Over the last three decades, EBN has become a reference point in Europe on innovation, spin-off, incubation, entrepreneurship, SMEs, and internationalisation through the ‘Soft Landing’ service, a new co-incubation service for innovation led companies who wish to explore new markets offered by EBN Business Innovation Centres and other incubators at a selection of global locations. EBN is responsible for the overall coordination and dissemination of the ACE Programme, including its expansion and sustainability beyond the ACE project’s lifetime.
