Call for applications: 'European Union Women Innovators Prize 2014' - deadline: October 15, 2013

After a successful first edition in 2011, the European Commission has launched the second edition of the EU Women Innovators Prize to reward three women who have achieved outstanding innovations and brought them to market.

The contest is open to all women who have founded or co-founded their company and who have at some point of their careers benefitted from the EU's research framework programmes or the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme.


Why the EU has launched this Prize? Although women are more and more active in research, there are still too few women creating innovative enterprises. This represents an untapped potential for Europe which needs all its human resources to remain competitive and find solutions to the great challenges that we are facing (such as climate change, energy and resource efficiency, health etc). Europe needs more women innovators who can act as role models for the next generation.

In total three prizes will be awarded: 1st prize - €100 000, 2nd prize - €50 000, 3rd prize - €25 000. Apply now to get a chance of winning one of the three prizes!
