AIR Institute and BISITE group join the GILL project consortium

Last week the kick-off meeting of the GILL (Gendered Innovation Living Labs) project was held in Brussels. Juan Manuel Corchado and Marta Plaza represented AIR Institute and the BISITE Research Group respectively, in this productive and educational event that was attended by all the project partners and some representatives of the European Commission.

Based on the Living Lab principles, GILL aims to become the open innovation framework for all European actors working with a gender perspective. One of the main objectives and where our AIR Institute will actively participate, is to broaden the community of innovation from a gender perspective, facilitating the capitalization of experience, peer-to-peer learning and the creation of communities to promote women innovators.

With this project, and the initiatives we are advancing through the AIR Institute and BISITE Research Group, we hope to achieve a significant increase in vocation and, at the same time, develop strategies and mechanisms to attract more women to projects related to technological developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) in particular.

We are very pleased to be part of this ambitious project, which aims to create a fairer Open Innovation Ecosystem to foster the effective participation, innovation and thought leadership of women and other traditionally underrepresented groups.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation program under grant agreement no. 101094812.
