Acceleration Program: Empowering Females through Capacity Building



IFC, a member of the World Bank Group in partnership with the UK Government’s Good Governance Fund is implementing the Armenia Economic Growth and Economic Empowerment of Women project. This project aims to improve the economic impact of female entrepreneurs through capacity building and helping to access global business networks.


Within the Empowering Females through Capacity Building to promote technology in non-technology sectors program we launch the Acceleration program in Yerevan, Gyumri, Vanadzor

R&D Ecosystem



Enterprise Incubator Foundation (EIF), with support of PMI Science, is implementing extensive R&D ecosystem development programs since 2018. Support programs for the research institutes and universities of Armenia play an important role in the scientific progress in the number of contemporary fields including Applied Mathematics and Physics, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, Biomedicine, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Material Science etc.


The Faculty Research Funding Program and PhD Support Program are the flagship initiatives, which create valuable community of scientists and shape science in Armenia. Since the first announcement, there are already over 100 scientists representing 16 different research institutions and universities who benefited from the programs.


In frame of the programs, the winning research teams and PhD students receive financial support as well as get an opportunity to participate in the exclusive community events, closely work with local and international mentors and experts in the field.
