Points of View:
Women innovators and entrepreneurship study
On January 2008 the Commission decided to undertake a study on women inventors/innovators and entrepreneurship. The aim is to perform a literature review to collect, analyse, and evaluate data regarding the profile and the particular problems that women inventors/innovators are facing when they try to become successful entrepreneurs.
The study will also collect and analyse information on policy solutions from selected countries at a national level to promote entrepreneurship for women innovators. The final report will be published this month (September 2008) and we'll be featuring the findings in Issue 4 of SME Update.
