EIC launches call for EU Women Innovators Prize 2021

The European Innovation Council (EIC) has recently launched the call for the 2021 EU Prize for Women Innovators. According to the European Commission, this prize celebrates the women entrepreneurs behind game-changing innovations. In doing so, the EU seeks to raise awareness of the need for more female innovators, and create role models for women and girls everywhere.

The prize is awarded to the most talented women entrepreneurs from across the EU and countries associated to Horizon Europe who have founded a successful company and brought innovation to the market. The prize is managed by the European Innovation Council and the SMEs Executive Agency, and the winners are chosen by an independent expert jury.

Three prizes of €100,000 each are awarded in the main category. A fourth prize of €50,000 is awarded to a promising ‘Rising Innovator’ aged 30 or younger. The deadline for submissions of applications is 17:00 (CET) on 30 June 2021.
