About SPICA

Thank you

Initiated on the basis of the network of SPICE Group and national associations, the research work for SPICA Directory brought many new contacts and created new links, also with organizations promoting innovative entrepreneurship although not directly involved in operating innovation centers. This publication was made possible by the personal motivation of many people interested in promoting international contacts and collaboration.

We thank these partners as well as all managers of innovation centers who provided additional material and corrected the data we mailed. Without help from all these people, we would not have been able to provide the comprehensive data collection published in this Directory.

Special thanks we wish to extend to Larisa Brovarska, SPICE Group Poznan, who organized and carried out most of the collection of information and prepared the material for publication. Without this motivated and engaged work, the directory would not have been possible. Thanks also to Izabela Stelmaszewska, PBICA Poznan, who supported the data collection work from the SPICE office in Poznan, Poland.
