The participation of women in the innovation eco-system is crucial to the development of work that will truly change the world. Innovates 2018 Women in Innovation will soon be launched and will consist of a funding competition and support package to encourage more female-led innovation. Alongside this, Innovate UK will start running quarterly innovation accelerator workshops to help get more women innovating in business nationwide. We will also review our existing programmes to see how we can better promote and inspire diversity.
The second Women in Innovation competition will seek ideas that address the 4 grand challenges posed by government’s Industrial Strategy. These are:
- AI and the data economy
- clean growth
- future of mobility
- ageing society
You can learn more about the 4 Grand Challenges.
