The project is coordinated by Oxford Brookes University in collaboration with the University of Oxford and Vitae. The project vision is to achieve a step change in institutional capabilities to increase the participation of women scientists, engineers and mathematicians in university spinouts and to mainstream gender in the ecosystem which drives innovation. The overall project will last 24 months and will be in two stages.
Stage one will aim to acquire new knowledge by undertaking research to understand the causes of women's underrepresentation in spinouts and any enabling factors that can help them into entrepreneurial leadership, both from an institutional/structural and an individual perspective. Its specific objectives are:
Stage two will aim to develop interventions to build institutional capabilities. These interventions will be informed by the findings from stage one research and they will also draw from international best practice and methodology to create tools that promote organisational learning on how to practically and effectively mainstream gender in innovation and the spinout process. During this stage, the project will also seek to develop joint initiatives with industry. Specific objectives in this stage are:
