Fincalabra SPA sees joining the network as the possibility to gain visibility among the regional and European authorities and learn from the EU|BIC network, which have gained advanced skills in the engineering and management of national or European programmes.
Moreover, Fincalabra SPA sees the value in joining the network as a way to become a part of trusted partners, EBN members, who share the same values and the same vision all over Europe and beyond. In the same way, FINCALABRA SPA wants to improve its mentoring and acceleration services, and benchmark with other EU|BICs to improve its performance.
On the other hand, Fincalabra SPA can contribute to the network by involving the national stakeholders, defining development strategy and implementing national and community policies or programmes.
