European and International Networks

Networking is a fundamental component and the backbone of Fomento San Sebastián’s action. Specifically, the Area of European Programmes is working on promoting our presence in networks, especially at a European level, allowing for the exchange of experiences and the development of new shared projects.


We are particularly active in the following international networks
