The EIB Group, in partnership with the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TÜSİAD), hosted an interactive seminar on their financial products for innovative and growth businesses in Istanbul, Turkey on Thursday 16th April 2015.
The morning seminar consisted of a series of concise product presentations followed by a networking lunch. In the afternoon there were one-to-one infodesks so that companies, banks and private investors could directly speak with EIB and EIF staff.
The event was open to CEOs, CFOs and top management of innovative companies (from large SMEs to corporates) in the automotive, ICT, biotech and industrial sectors, as well as financial intermediaries, financial advisory organizations and industry associations.
Both the EU and the EIB Group intend to more than double their combined support for research and innovation in Europe over the next 7 years, making more than EUR 24bn available.
