After a successful first edition in 2011, the European Commission has launched the second edition of the EU Prize for Women Innovators to reward three women who have achieved outstanding innovations and brought them to market.
The contest is open until 15 October 2013, 5:00 pm (Brussels time) to all women who have founded or co-founded their company and who have at some point of their careers benefitted from the EU's research framework programmes or the Competitiveness and Innovation framework programme.
The first prize is EUR 100.000, second prize EUR 50.000 and the third prize EUR 25.000.
An independent panel of judges from business and academia will examine and select the three winners who will be announced in spring 2014.
