Summary report on European good practice on facilitating female inventors

The Profis project prepared in 2014 a Summary report on European good practice on promoting female innovators.

The report states that no common or consistent definition of women innovators/inventors exists in the literature. Inventors may generally be defined as those who create the original idea or product; innovators more generally are recognised for their ability to make a better idea or version from the original or find new arenas for application.

Expected results

Key results of the project: 28 organisations with improved capacities in supporting early stage funding of innovation, 135 projects prepared for early stage funding, 10 policy papers at national and SEE levels on improving innovation funding measures, introduction of a new platform for bridging inventors in SEE and local and global investors, and awareness building on the promotion of female inventors.
