Today on May 16 the University Marin Barleti in collaboration with EDIC one of the centre’s
which compose it became member of the European Business and Innovation Centre Network –
EBN.

EBN is now the leading non-governmental pan-European network bringing together 200+
Business & Innovation Centres (BICs), and similar organisations such as incubators, innovation
and entrepreneurship centres across the enlarged Europe.

BICs are organisations which promote innovation and entrepreneurship. They help enterprises
to innovate; they drive the creation of start-ups (support to innovation, incubation and
internationalisation) and they promote economic development through job and enterprise
creation and development.

The network is therefore an umbrella organisation bringing together over 200 BICs from all
around Europe and beyond. It provides help and support to these BICs by acting as an interface
with other organisations including the European Commission (which officially recognises EBN),
by providing expertise in numerous areas including funding and by stimulating the sharing of
best practices.
