This is a call supported by the research and innovation framework programme Horizon Europe. The call is launched in accordance with the Europena Innovation Council (EIC) 2021 Work Programme3 and will be managed by the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency.
The Prize is awarded to up to four women innovators in total (including one young ‘Rising Innovator’) who have created the largest impact on the innovation ecosystem by transforming ideas into new and advanced products and/or services for the benefit and wealth of European citizens.
The prizes will boost public awareness of the potential, importance and contribution of women to the innovation ecosystem, and create role models to inspire other women to become innovators themselves.
Applications will be subject to a formal evaluation by an independent expert jury. We expect evaluation results/award in November 2021.
