Women from EIC-funded projects can apply for the new Woman Leadership Programme


The European Innovation Council has recently launched a new Women Leadership Programme to provide a dedicated programme of mentoring, skills enhancement and networking for women entrepreneurs and researchers in EIC supported projects. The EIC WLP will be part of the set of Business Acceleration Services offered to companies and projects supported by EIC. The new programme will offer to 50 women from EIC-funded projects the tailored-made training and the chance to work with personal mentors and coaches to define and follow their business strategies. At a second stage, this Programme will be extended to projects selected under the new WomenTechEU scheme.  

Together with the launch of the new programme, the European Innovation Council pilot Advisory Board published a statement on gender and diversity, urging the EIC and all other innovation actors to take immediate action to achieve balanced representation of women and men along the entire innovation chain.
