European project WE-Mentor
Motivate women entrepreneurs to participate in European projects
Women entrepreneurs are of high importance for economic and regional development. They are active in research and development. However their participation level in European research projects and trans-national co-operation is low. This is even more true for women owned businesses. Part of the problem is that women entrepreneurs are not reached by the mainstream information and support schemes for European Research and Technological Development (EU RTD).
WE-Mentor (Enterprising Women in European Research Mentoring India, Israel, Romania and Turkey) was building on a partnership of 10 EU member states organised in the consortium of the completed project ).
Four EU Member states (Belgium, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom) took the lead to mentor four “newcomers” to the topic of integrating women entrepreneurs into European Research (Romania, Turkey, Israel and India).
The project was coordinated by Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum.
