This training misión is the result from a first view of the General Director of BIC Euronova to The United Arab Emirates this year in January, who travelled to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah to offer BIC Euronova’s and EBN’ services. By this way they could create closer ties of collaborations that start to materialize with this first training and knowledge transmission action.

After receiving the training, the team from such University will start-up a Spin Off programme about business creation, following the BIC Euronova and the EBN methodology and also counting with the support from the University of Malaga.
