FEPIC - Female Engineers Pushing Innovations in Companies - was funded within the E.U."Lifelong Learning Programme". It started in October 2008 and ended in November 2010.

FEPIC centred around two main themes: creativity and leadership, with a focus on the person's professional potential to provide new directions and changes from the bottom upwards. Creative thinking is crucial for innovation, which in turn results in increased competitiveness. Varying positive role models can be offered by female Leaders who can attract and network with female students and engineers throughout their long-term careers.

FEPIC aimed to emphasize creativity and leadership to tackle the persistent under representation of women in senior positions. The project fostered gender equality and an overall growth in transversal expertise by implementing an online training tool as an instrument of fair human resources development. The project focused on the gender dimension in training and professional processes. By empowering those female engineers with high potential, the overall objective was to overcome the barriers that too often stop women from achieving senior positions.

The project had a direct impact on:

  • students, who increase their employability and entrepreneurial attitude; 
  • companies and other organizations, who make contact with young women, allowing them to fully exploit their scientific background in a creative way and to take on a leadership position;  
  • universities, thus improving the quality of training and matching the needs of companies and society.

Creativity for innovation and leadership were the themes on which all the partners focused when collating information from different sources. The final result was an e-learning tool that is freely available online (www.fepic.eu) and is delivered in the 6 languages of the partners’ countries. The content of the modules was developed mainly by Italy (Leadership) and Malta (Creativity) along with the collaboration of all the partners of the project, including universities, companies and associations located in Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Poland, Sweden, United Kingdom. An active role was also played by 63 female students, who were involved in all phases of the project: from collating information, to monitoring, distributing and exploiting the results.
