Now open: European Social Innovation Competition 2021
Launched in memory of social innovation pioneer Diogo Vasconcelos, the European Social Innovation Competition is a Competition run by the European Commission, with the support from the EIC across all EU Member States and Horizon Europe associated countries. Each year, three €50,000 prizes are awarded by the European Commission for the best socially innovative projects designed to change the world for the better.
The European Social Innovation Competition is supported of a consortium of organisations from across Europe. The consortium this year is led by Nesta Challenges and includes our partner Euclid Network, GOPA Com. and Ashoka Spain.
The Competition launched in 2013 and acts as a beacon for social innovators across Europe, employing a proven methodology for supporting early-stage ideas and facilitating a network of radical innovators shaping our society for the better. Each year the Competition addresses a different issue facing Europe.
2021 the competition is looking for "SKILLS FOR TOMORROW – Shaping a green and digital future".
