WITECH is an EU Erasmus+ initiative that seeks to encourage female scientists, engineers and technologists across Europe to develop businesses based on their expertise. The Digital Hub, along with TU Dublin, are the Irish partners in WITECH.

A MOOC, or Massive Open Online Course, sits at the heart of WITECH. This free blended learning course builds skills and confidence in woman with STEM qualifications that can lead them to create their own innovative businesses. The MOOC is structured over three weeks and its modules cover Entrepreneurship and Management, Technology Entrepreneurship and Tech start-ups and hubs in technology entrepreneurial ecosystems. A Certificate of Accomplishment is awarded to those who successfully complete the course (European Qualifications Framework Level 6).
