    It is obvious that there would not be any innovation without inventions. As we look around we can see inventions everythere, unless we stand naked in the middle of woods.. So, thanks to Konrad Suze who built the very first electomechanical computer and Tim Berners-Lee who invented the World Wide Web I can sit here and write to you today.

    There are also ladies who have done many awesome inventions, but somehow we know a lot less about them. Let me name just a few: Rosalyn Yalow, Marie Curie, Stephanie Kwolec, Ruth Handler, Mary Potts, Sybilla Masters and Magdalena Villarus..  Do you know what they have invented? If not, it is time to make a little Google search and find out, coz some of them have changed the World we know ;)

    Quin Estonia in cooperation with the Global Inventors & Innovators Network  (GWIIN) hosted the 2nd international conference and exhibition for women inventors in Tallinn University of Technology from 24th-25th April. More than 100 lady-inventors gathered from Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Russia, Tadzikistan, Latvia, Lithuania,  Estonia and United Kingdom.

    The conference was opened by Tea Varrak, director of Mektory followed by Christer Haglund from the Nordic Council of Ministers and by our brandnew director of the  Patent Office  Margus Viher. Soon after this we heard opening speech by Bola Olabisi , founder and the president of GWIIN. Other guest speakesrs were Maila Hakala from QUIN Finland, Elinora Inga Sigurdardottir from KVENN Icland and Wanja Bellander from QUIN Sweden. The main organizer of the event was Anne-Mari Rannamäe, Pesident of QUIN Estonia. Interviews were made by StartupRadio & gallery of photos is available on FB.

    * The next big event organized by European Union Women Inventors & Innovators  Network (EUWIIN) will take place in London from 14-15 October.
