New support announced for Women in Innovation

New funding and support is to be made available to women through a second round of Innovate UK's female-only competition.

Innovate UK has announced that it will run a second phase of its Women in Innovation awards. The programme, which will launch later this year, will consist of a funding competition and support package to encourage more female-led innovation.

Alongside this, Innovate UK will start running quarterly innovation accelerator workshops to help get more women innovating in business nationwide. They will also review their existing programmes to see how they can better promote and inspire diversity.

The second Women in Innovation competition will seek ideas that address the 4 grand challenges posed by government's Industrial Strategy. These are:

* AI and the data economy
* Clean growth
* Future of mobility
* Ageing society
