Women in The Spring Allocation of the Technology Development Fund

The Spring Allocation of the Technology Development Fund will take place today, but a total of 91 projects will receive funding this time.

When looking at the proportion by gender of the project manager, you can see that less than a third of project managers are women. Of the 91 projects that receive funding, nine projects have been completed by accelerators at KLAK, raising the possibility that of these nine projects, seven of them are led by women.

"It can therefore be said that a strong supportive environment of innovation is effective in straightening out gender equity in the allocation of funding for innovation. We congratulate all the beneficiaries on their achievements and look forward to the cooperation going forward!", says Kristín Soffía Jónsdóttir, Managing Director of KLAK
