Transforming Europeans Womens's Entrepreneurship: The Education and Training for Success Programme

Women Entrepreneurs Programme at the Thematic Business University Forum in Vienna


The 2016 Vienna Thematic Forum that took place on the 25th and 26th of February, focused on university-business cooperation from the perspective of fostering innovation through collaborative effort and joint activities. The event was a joint effort of the European Commission, the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.

During this event, project members Andria Iapona (3s – Secondment from CUT) and Janine Wulz (3s) had the opportunity through networking sessions to hand over project flyers and inform other participants about the project and its aims.  Participants were very interested to learn about ‘’Women Entrepreneurs Programme’’ and how it will contribute to social and economic development by increasing the number of female entrepreneurs and their performance potential.
