The Raise– women’s initiatives for innovation systems

Published: 9 May 2006

This project studies endeavours to promote women’s entrepreneurship and women’s organisation of innovation systems. We are interested in how women’s entrepreneurship and initiatives relate to programmes for regional development.

The Raise is based on experience from companies, networks, resource centres, associations and district development groups run by women in the counties of Norrbotten, Västerbotten, Västmanland, and Södermanland.

Project owner was Luleå University of Technology, with Mälardalen University as the academic partner. The project was funded by VINNOVA, the Swedish Agency for Growth, the European Regional Fund, the County Administrative Boards of Västmanland and tSödermanland.
