Girls Go Circular is part of the Skill for Future – project which aims at preparing young students with entrepreneurial skills and enhance their career opportunities while raising their interest in societal challenges, technology, innovation and entrepreneurialism. Both projects are led by EIT Raw materials, which in collaboration with EIT Manufacturing runs the 2020 pilot. Other KICs, as EIT Food, will join for its further development on 2021.
Girls Go Circular aims at closing the gender gap when it comes to the number of women working as entrepreneurs in the digital sector within the EU. The European Commission’s Digital Education Action Plan reports that only 30% of entrepreneurs and 32% of economic leaders in the EU are women. Furthermore, only 15% of tech sector workers in the EU are women.
