ECONOMY: EUROPEAN COMMISSION AWARDS "WOMEN INNOVATORS"

"Gender equality is not just a moral imperative, it also has an economic value – says Vìra Jourová, EU Justice Commissioner – because diversity is good for innovation and business, brings new talents and new ideas". That’s why the European Commission set up the third round of the "EU Prize for Women Innovators", "to encourage other women – went on the Justice Commissioner – to start a career in the field of science and business, in which women are still scarcely represented". "The situation has somewhat improved in Europe, but women researchers and businesswomen are still a minority and we cannot go on doing without this bulk of talents – said EU Innovation and Research Commissioner Carlos Moedas". The competition is open to all women founding or co-founding a business or company, and benefiting from EU loans in the fields of research and innovation. Competitors may present questions until 20 October 2015, and a high-level jury will value and select three winners who will be awarded the first Prize of 100 thousand euros, 50 thousand for the second, and 30 thousand for the third.
