EASTERN PARTNERSHIP PLATFORM II
2nd International Women’s Entrepreneurship Laboratory
21-23 MARCH 2017
“Chamber Plaza”, Kyiv, Ukraine
The 2nd International Women’s Entrepreneurship Laboratory‑2017 is organised by the European Commission and the European Training Foundation (ETF), in close collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Ukraine, European Business Association and EUROCHAMBRES.
The “2nd International Women’s Entrepreneurship Laboratory in the Eastern Partner region” will take place in Kyiv (Ukraine) on March 21-23, 2017. After the success of the 1st Women’s Entrepreneurship Laboratory in 2014 (Rome, Italy), we are happy to announce a follow-up event. It will be organised under the Platform II of Eastern Partnership (EaP). Its objective is to strengthen the existing regional synergies and build on the momentum created by latest SBA Assessment, and in line with SBA recommendations (see LINK to SME Policy Index 2016, Eastern Partner region).
This “Laboratory” will strive to supply additional “energy” for a systematic SBA follow-up in the policy area of women’s entrepreneurship at the country and EaP region’s level, and provide a platform, an interim check-point of progress in preparation for the next SBA policy assessment (2018). The “Laboratory” aims to support the commitment of Eastern Partner governments and policy partners in promotion of women’s entrepreneurship and identify common policy targets that could be instrumental for exchange of know-how and cross-country peer learning. The “2nd International Women’s Entrepreneurship Laboratory in the Eastern Partner region” will create space for innovative and creative policy collaboration, informal networking, sharing good practice and expertise, and we hope to make it informal and oriented at very practical results.
