The first decentralized training for women entrepreneurs took place on May 2nd.  It comprised a centralized online-webinar which was followed by around 50 women at the premises of different EMPOWA team members. Information was given on the criteria companies have to fulfil in order to be eligible for funding in the framework of the SME Instrument. Furthermore, the presentations given focused on the writing of competitive proposals and concrete programme requirements namely the excellence, impact and implementation of projects.
