A Word from the CSO of EBN, Bram Pauwels:
"For nearly four decades, EBN and the pan-European EU|BIC community has been guided by the belief in innovation as a powerful force for sustainable economic growth, social progress, and sustainability. United by their common mission and unique in their local contributions, EBN’s quality-certified EU|BICs play a vital role in regional development, job creation, and making a positive societal impact by providing resources, guidance, and connections for startups, SMEs and innovators of all kinds to thrive.
Increasingly, innovation can address systemic crises and create solutions across multiple dimensions including all actors of the innovation helix. Regional innovation ecosystems provide crucial leverage in addressing local challenges by connecting local resources and networks. They support the development of context-specific solutions, ensuring relevance, effectiveness, and local ownership - closely aligned with European strategies and initiatives such as the European Green Deal.
With the EU|BIC Innovation Ecosystem Framework we seek to provide a comprehensive roadmap for realising and strengthening local innovation ecosystems, driving pan-European and global innovation - ultimately to create greater wellbeing for all."
