A new look at breakthrough innovation – how women can change the world
We are a top 100 University with a unique disciplinary range and cutting-edge research. We have exceptional opportunities to create new solutions that improve people’s lives all over the world, putting knowledge and research findings generated here to good use.
But are our ideas about gender holding innovation back?
To tackle the challenges facing the world, we must make the most of all existent innovative power. Innovation has for a long time been mainly associated with male-dominated sectors and new technology. How do we make room for a diversity of ideas? How can Lund University contribute to creating sustainable and gender-equal projects and companies? And how do you do to embark on an innovation journey when pursuing an academic career?
This is a session for inspiration and enlightenment. You will meet Katrine Marçal, journalist and author of Att uppfinna världen, and you will meet women who have taken on the challenge to develop their ideas and research findings to make a difference.
Introduction and moderator: Anna Branten, initiator of diversity initiative The Yes Way, former CEO at Ideon Innovation, writer of the report What do we know about female entrepreneurship and a strong advocate for gender balance within innovation and the startup scene.
