Oxford Brookes University in collaboration with the University of Oxford and Vitae have been funded by EPSRC under its Inclusion Matters call to undertake a project to identify barriers as well as enabling factors that exist for women in STEM in key stages of the spinout process and entrepreneurial activities to commercialise research and innovation.
Initial funding provided by the Oxford Brookes Business School Small Grants Scheme enabled Ioanna Iordanou to study the ‘Secret Archive’ of Renaissance Venice, stored in Venice’s state archives, in order to sketch out the organisational structure of Renaissance Venice's secret service.
