New European Union Project Paves the Way for Women in Technology

The project aims to give more women access to technology, digital skills and leadership positions.

The European Union has funded the three-year EQUALS EU project with a grant of 1.6 million Euro, and OsloMet is the coordinating institution.

Increased participation to promote digital inclusion

Men are often driving innovations, which also benefit men. Therefore, the starting point of the project is to increase the participation of women in research and innovation in order to promote digital inclusion. 

The project will help to build gender inclusive innovation ecosystems that can cultivate a new generation of female inventors. It will also address the economic, social and cultural roots of gender inequality that affect education, employment and social life.
