Welcome to the EU Madad Lab III in Jordan

Are you interested in innovative activities focusing on women empowerment? Are you motivated to make a positive contribution to women within your community, within the context of the Syrian crisis?  

If your answer to these questions is a loud YES, we invite you to apply to the EU Madad Innovation Lab III: Women Empowerment, organised by the Qudra Programme. EU Madad Innovation Labs provide a dialogue platform where you, with your Jordanian and Syrian peers, will participate in sessions regarding design thinking, creative idea generation, entrepreneurship, business development, impact assessment and a range of social skills. Together with your team, you will be guided to develop solutions to the challenges you jointly identify in the context of the Syrian crisis. You will be exposed to a variety of experts in the field, and will get to know and share ideas with your peers from Turkey, Lebanon and Kurdistan Region of Iraq/KRI.

During the final event of the programme, the Pitching Day, a Jury (consisting of representatives of commissioning parties, political partners, experts and other relevant stakeholders of Qudra Programme) will select the most innovative ideas which will be provided EU Madad Innovation Fund - seed fund- to implement their projects.

The guiding question for the EU Madad Lab III is:

How do we foster women empowerment within Syrian refugees, IDP’s and host communities through innovation and dialogue?
