The project focuses on the investigation, analysis and documentation of the possibilities offered by the internet, social networks and other communication technologies to reduce labor inequalities, and promote new opportunities for entrepreneurship and employment for women of all ages.

For this purpose, the project includes a description and assessment of existing opportunities offered through online networks, tools and markets, as well as professional and educational social networking platforms and e-learning.

In addition, through scientific research will document and analyze the current use of the Internet for purposes of employment and vocational education and training, and awareness of young women in Greece on employment opportunities offered by the internet, social networks and new technology.

Main results of the project are expected to be:

• The design and preparation of training packages that meet current trends and needs.

• The organizing of webinars for upgrading the skills of women and to encourage the use of the internet and social networks in particular in terms of employability and entrepreneurship.
