EU Funding Opportunity

14 September 2016

Europe urgently needs more innovators to stay competitive in the coming decades and to spur economic growth. A large number of well-educated women, who represent a tremendous untapped pool of innovation, do not consider entrepreneurship as an option.


Awards have a strong potential to drive innovation through the recognition of achievements and the promotion of role models. Therefore, the European Commission created in 2011 a Prize for Women Innovators to increase public awareness of this issue and to encourage women to exploit the commercial and business opportunities and become entrepreneurs.


For the 4th time, the EC wants to highlight the outstanding achievements of women innovators who have (co-) founded a successful company and brought an innovation to market and benefitted from Research and Innovation funding from the public or private sector.

 

Deadline: November 3, 2016.
