We follow a cross-disciplinary approach and welcome all members from the EIT community —students, alumni, entrepreneurs, staff and partners— to join us. We provide our members with platforms to share their experiences, exchange ideas and opportunities, and together activate the power of women in innovation, entrepreneurship and technology.

Our community

Would you like to lend a helping hand?

We aim to provide training on topics to support female leaders:

  • Exchanges with leading companies seeking female talent in students and alumni from the EIT programs and Knowledge Innovation Communities
  • Workshops on digital and technical skills in high demand, on negotiating your worth, on learning how to invest, etc
  • Exchanges with entrepreneurs to share their journey, how they overcame their struggles, how to set a company, how to fund it, etc

We support and are on the lookout for volunteers, speakers, and partners to collaborate with us to organise events, workshops, and masterclasses.

After I heard about [email protected], I could not wait to dive into all it has to offer to the EIT through boosting females’ voices. The more I knew about the community, the more I wanted to be part of it. Early 2020, I started my collaboration connecting [email protected] with EIT Raw Materials and collaborate in the organisation of events. I do firmly believe that [email protected] is leading EIT women to become a better version of themselves!

The speech given by Maria Kanov at the EIT Alumni CONNECT event was so inspiring that I just had to be part of this community that matches perfectly my ideas about women entrepreneurs and leaders. Surely enough I got engaged with [email protected] to create a series of webinars about Leadership and it has been an amazing experience! This community is a great support for all the women in the EIT community, bringing us all together to shape a better future.

[email protected] is a community which aims to activate the power of women in European innovation and entrepreneurship. Our members are people affiliated with all the EIT communities who want to network, learn from, and exchange with likeminded people. Together we support the shift towards a more gender-equal European ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship.
