2020: A Year like no other
Throughout this year, there have been many who have come together and shined a light of trust and hope for all. You, our members, have been that light for our community.
2020. The end of our 35th anniversary. We planned new adventures and big gatherings. All of our teams were set to prepare for a brand new era. But, 2020. It had other plans.
The world paused. And our members instead devoted their skills and ingenuity to the fight against Covid-19. Amid difficult times we worked on.
Eventually, with the support and tireless work of the entire EU|BIC family we got back on track. This time with added purpose.
Against all odds, the year was still sensational. The first virtual EBN Congress was born. EU|BIC accreditation went online. Horizon Europe, an astonishing innovation funding framework emerged. The European business innovation community widened. And, EBN welcomed a new ad interim CEO.
New members joined. And, some old friends re-connected, too. New projects started. New faces in the spotlight. The emergence of a full new service offering. And, illation for new regions joining the community.
It was a unique, one-off year. And, thanks to your unwavering commitment for this widening innovation landscape we all empower, it felt as connected as ever.
Until we unite again in the coming year, together, we say to everyone who made 2020 possible: thank you.
Without you, partners, Certified EU|BICs and Associates, there is no EU|BIC community.
The EBN Team
