, the BIC of Northern Ireland has been selected as the host of our next Annual Congress in 2013 in the city of Derry-Londonderry. This was officially announced on the occasion of the EBN Members General Assembly which took place last Thursday 14 June in Lappeenranta, Finland.
A Congress with a difference

A Congress with a difference,
is the slogan chosen by our hosts to mark their commitment to make of
this event a unique moment. Indeed, 2013 will be a momentous year for
Derry as it will be the 400th anniversary of the historic city walls and
they will also be celebrating winning the first ever UK City of
Culture. There is no better time in this city's history to bring EBN
Congress to Northern Ireland.
Derry is a University City and regional centre for the North West of
Ireland, acting as the commercial and business hub for both Northern
Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Their highly educated and
motivated young workforce are injecting innovation, energy and talent
into everyday life, helping to attract and build some of the world's
most innovative companies, along with leaders in nanotechnology,
intelligent systems and software through to vital clinical research.
