Vinnova provides funding for research within the area of Gender and Innovation, including women’s entrepreneurship programme and Applied Gender Research for Strong Research and Innovation Milieus (TIGER). This funding is part of a strategy by which the Agency aims to fulfil its official mission of funding gender research and contributing to gender equality in relevant areas of activity. These tasks are united under Vinnova’s R&D programme entitled Gender and Innovation. This book describes a selection of the projects funded under the programme during the period 2004-2008.
We hope this book may inspire those who have considered starting up development work for increased innovation capacity and gender equality but who, for one reason or another, have not yet realised their aims.
