Calling all female innovators!

The European Commission is looking for innovators like you (and there are big prizes up for grabs)!

The EU Prize for Woman Innovators has just opened for applications. With the EU Prize for Women Innovators, the European Commission wants to give public recognition to outstanding women entrepreneurs who brought their innovative ideas to the market. The aim is to inspire other women to follow in their footsteps.

After two successful rounds, the European Commission has launched the third edition of the prize. Three prizes will be awarded in Spring 2016:

• 1st prize: €100 000
• 2nd prize: €50 000
• 3rd prize: €30 000

Contestants will be able to submit their entries until 20th October 2015 (12:00 – Brussels time), which will be assess by an independent panel of judges from business and academia. Three winners will be selected and announced in 2016.
