On September 26th, 2017, the WISE4ALL initiative will be officially launched within the event “A new inclusive and open society: women contribution to innovation” organised in collaboration with the MEP Pina Picierno with the support of the S&D Group. The event will introduce the values, vision and network which underpin WISE4ALL’s framework.
The conference will put the focus on a new participatory model that, by valorizing the active participation of women to innovation processes, could bring a benefit to the whole community. Social and open innovation, creative culture, and digitalization can play a big part to this process, as it will be explained by the speeches of Bror Salmelin and Loretta Anania from the European Commission, DG Connect.
WISE4ALL will be presented as an example of a participatory approach that gathers women from different backgrounds to develop a new social model. WISE4ALL – Women for Innovative Society in Europe – is a European initiative with the aim to design and implement new technical and social projects, by overcoming the gender approach, through the valorization of human experiences.
Created in 2015, the initiative has been joined so far by 10 institutions all over Europe among Universities, research centers, non-governmental and private organizations active in the fields of digital innovation, culture, social development and civil rights.
