The aim of this specific proposal is to set up the mechanism based on which #GIL4W will become a flagship project for both countries acting as a knowledge transfer mechanism from Norway to Greece where members can share tools, lessons learned, business bases and rapidly push forward innovative practices. The key role of the Norwegian partners besides the identification of synergies with the relevant Greek actors will be to transfer through co-creation and frugal innovation concept the valuable Norwegian know-how and help the Post-COVID recovery and the negative impacts of the financial crisis on the Greek economy and the female workforce in the Greek labour market.

GIL4W will create a space where members can share tools, lessons learned, business bases, and rapidly push forward innovative practices. They are encouraged to set their own specific targets to:

  1. Make a high-level corporate commitment to adopt a gender-responsive approach to innovation
  2. Design innovations that include women as service and innovation providers as well as end-users
  3. Adapt implementation approaches to ensure innovations meet the needs of women
  4. Evaluate gender-responsive impacts by using a data-driven approach
  5. Scaling of the innovations that provide sustainable solutions to meet the needs of women and girls and creating a Greek Community of Excellence for women innovators and STEM entrepreneurs bringing them to the forefront of the global innovation ecosystem.
