Women initiatives flourish – Women Entrepreneurs, Women in Leadeship, Women in Technology Women in ICT…
However, a majority of women in business – SE Europe, rural areas or women entrepreneurs lacking higher education – are still unaware of the role and value of intangibles / intellectual capital for their business and thus miss the opportunity to manage it effectively for improved value creation, competitiveness and sustainable growth.
The NCP women task force group was founded in aim to enhance the visibility of NCP through collaborative actions and projects related to women and IC. We are at the stage of dynamic definition of women contribution to the current EU (and world) challenges.
Each member comes from a different European country, and brings in different perspectives on the position, opportunities and difficulties of women in business enabling unique insights and synergies.
The first event will be “café philo” at the Open Innovation 2.0 https://ec.europa.eu/digital-single-market/en/news/open-innovation-20-conference-2016

The Worldbank Knowledge Economy Index ranks Myanmar as second lowest among 157 countries across all key variables relating to ICT, innovation, education as well as economic incentive and institutional regime; Transparency International’s 2013 Corruption Perception Index lists Myanmar in the bottom group of countries, and the most recent Internet World Statisticsreport (2012) shows that internet penetration is around 1%, although with the entry of two international telecom operators,Telenor and Ooredoo,rolling out voice and data services nationwide starting this month, these figures are expected to move up fast. The growth of internet access in Myanmar will predominantly be mobile internet access. 7% of the population use mobile phones; the lowest cost for an Android smartphone (with Myanmar font) is 60-70 USD and a SIM card with data services cost between 5 and 130 USD, depending on the channel through which one gets access to a SIM. Huawei’s smartphones are the market leader at the moment, followed by Samsung.

Dear friends and members of the NCP,
As many of us take this period of the year for reflection, contemplation and making new plans with (hopefully) new optimism, I would like to join this move, not giving a long report rather than looking forward to what we have and still may achieve together.
