About Winnet BSR
Aim & and background
Short-Term Objectives
Long-Term Objectives
During the last decade we have increased our understanding in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) of the necessity to create gender aware business support measures to achieve sustainable growth.
As mentioned above several projects have been implemented and the partnership aim at reinforcing the integration of good practices from these interventions into mainstream business and innovation support in BSR.

There is still a lack of gender sensitive models and methods adapted to different industries, to SME collaboration and to cross-clustering in BSR. Furthermore there is still a lack of gender perspective in policies targeting business development and innovation in ICT and in tourism.

Even though gender equality and sustainable growth has been highlighted in the Action Plan for the EU Strategy for BSR, 2013, the perspective is not yet integrated into PA Innovation, SME and Tourism in the Strategy.

Gender awareness is crucial to secure that actions aimed at development of innovation, SMEs and tourism benefit both women and men as entrepreneurs in the region.

The Winnet BSR partnership with Women Resource Centres (WRCs), researchers, associations for women entrepreneurs, business support actors and an association active in BSR are committed to bring about change both in policies and practices.
