The four Core Network Partner and the Associate Network Partner from Brooklyn met in Brussels. It was emphasized that a primary objective of iLINC is to help European Law Institutions to build legal incubation capacity, and that the provision of legal services to ICT start-ups will happen as a result of the project.
The iLINC project formally commenced on 1 October 2013. All project partners came together towards the end of October in Brussels for the kick-off meeting. The team were fortunate to be joined by Prof. Jonathan Askin from Brooklyn Law School and founder of BLIP, the law incubator for ICT start-ups and entrepreneurs at Brooklyn.
