EIC Women Leadership Programme Launching Event: Acknowledging the winds of change

On 7 October 2021, the EIC Women Leadership Programme will be officially set in motion with a virtual event that will outline its services.

Is promoting the female role models and innovative business leaders of today - across the entrepreneurial spectrum - something that sparks your interest? You’ve come to the right place then.

To shed further light and reinforce the ongoing support on the uphill battle that has been the participation of women in the innovation, tech and business areas, the European Innovation Council (EIC) is launching a full-fledged impactful Women Leadership Programme (WLP). 50 women researchers and entrepreneurs were selected from a pool of over 200 applicants coming from various EIC funded projects (Accelerator, Pathfinder, and other Horizon 2020 legacy calls). Given this matter is becoming more important with each passing day, on 7 October 2021, the EIC Women Leadership Programme will be officially set in motion with a virtual event that will outline its services.nd entrepreneur, former member of the EIC Advisory Board and member of the EIC investment committee.
