43rd SPICE Meeting 72nd ICECE Work Group event in Bilbao

Bilbao, Spain
10 – 13 Jun 2001

The SPICE Workshop was held before the IASP World Conference of Science Parks was opened the same evening. Hosted by Luis Sanz, and Klaus Plate this short workshop concentrated on discussing potentials for future SPICE activities. Especially EU programs were introduced by Pavel Komarek, who expressed his recommendation to take advantage of the networking support provided from European sources. Other topics discussed were SPICA Directory and preparations for the workshop in Tallinn. The IASP conference, attended by more than 520 participants, offered many new contacts, especially with countries and continents not yet represented in the SPICE network. The social events of this conference were too impressive to add a special SPICE activity in this respect.
