The European Commission has launched the seventh edition of the EU Prize for Women Innovators. The Prize celebrates female leaders in innovation and aims to inspire the next generation to follow their footsteps. The contest is funded under Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme. Three “Women Innovators" will each receive €100,000, and another €50,000 will be awarded to a “Rising Innovator”, an exceptional entrepreneur at the beginning of her career.
