EBN's CEO, Philippe Vanrie, will be speaking in the panel entitled Investing in Young Talents and Startups, on the subject of "The role of BICs and the vision of EBN in the European Start-up and Scale-up policy".
This panel will provide a frame of national incentives and measures set up in both countries (Italy and China) to enhance creation and internationalisation of startups.

China is strongly engaged in investing on young talents and startups, also through international cooperation projects.
