"The #EUwomen4future campaign will feature extraordinary women active in research, innovation, education, culture and sport. It will put the spotlight on some of the great achievements that will help shape tomorrow’s Europe. Without its talented and hard-working professional women Europe cannot – and will not – move forward. My hope is that this campaign will also inspire you, women and girls - in the EU and beyond - to fulfil your ambitions and go after your dreams." Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth
