Women’s Health Initiative

About the initiative

BII’s women’s health initiative aims to strengthen the European ecosystem for innovative translational research and start-ups that address the high medical unmet needs within women’s health.

Part of women’s health initiative activities are supported by a grant from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

As part of this joint initiative, BII will conduct a thorough landscape analysis and identify leading research and start-up opportunities for women’s health, with the potential for future funding from BII and partners.

BII will also undertake community building and awareness creating activities with selected key partners within the ecosystem.

Please contact Johanna Roostalu at e-mail: jro@bii.dk if you have any questions.
