2018 has been a turbulent year for Women@EIT! While the focus of the previous years was to raise awareness around our community, this year’s focus was on strategic growth. Apart from our local events such as “Female pioneers” in Budapest and “Women for Women Workshops” in Helsinki, our main success this year was our Leadership intensive event in London. We made a call out and recruited 10 participants from over 60 applicants to become our next local leaders. Together, we now represent not onlyEIT Digital but also EIT Health, Climate-KIC and EIT InnoEnergy. We are looking forward to an exciting year 2019 and can’t wait to see many of their planned events taking place all over Europe.
