BIC Africa at the EBN Congress 2024 in Nantes, France

The BIC Africa team took part in the EBN annual congress (European Business and Innovation Centre Network) held from the 12th to 14th June in Nantes, France. This year EBN Congress (#EBN2024), co-organised by EU|BIC Atlanpole, gathered over 300 participants and 175+ Innovation organizations from 37 countries worldwide. It is the flagship gathering of European innovation centres, incubators, accelerators, science parks, and innovation actors. 

This year’s congress delved into the pivotal theme of “Supporting sustainable industry” and explored how the EU|BIC community is supporting challenge-driven, strong, innovation networks – regionally and EU-wide – and supporting entrepreneurial innovation that modernises industrial ventures. It tackled the subject of how to best navigate the delicate balance between sustainable, economic, and industrial development goals.  

BIC Africa had a booth and showcased its work in supporting the innovation ecosystems in the project target countries – Angola, Comoros, Ethiopia, Madagascar and Somalia.

The energy, engagement, and networking that took place at the congress reflects BIC Africa’s values and commitment to our shared vision of bringing closer African and European innovation ecosystems.   

We are honoured to sponsor and to have contributed to this year’s congress and look forward to continued collaboration with the European ecosystem.  

Mark your calendars and Stay tuned for this year’s BIC Africa Annual Gathering 2024 (#BICAfrica2024) scheduled for Thursday, October 24th, in-person in Antananarivo, Madagascar.
