Call for Women-Led Projects

We are excited to announce our first call for women-led projects in RHC solutions!

W4RES is committed to scaling-up the involvement of women in supporting and accelerating market update of renewable energy sources for heating and cooling. As part of this initiative, we are looking to support women-led projects in the RHC sector across selected European countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Norway and Slovakia.

We are looking for projects with a high level of women engagement that focus on the RHC sector. Such projects may include (but are not limited to) innovative technologies or design concepts for energy efficient buildings or city quarters, business ideas on how to engage people to reduce their carbon footprint or that sustainably address negative impacts of climate change. We offer customised business and technical support for your project at any stage of its development process.

We are looking for innovative and daring ideas and solutions!

More information, including selection criteria and the application form, can be found here.

Please submit your applications by 31 August at 17:00 CET.
