European Social Innovation Competition Award Ceremony

Venue: Albert Hall Complex

Launched in memory of social innovation pioneer Diogo Vasconcelos, the European Social Innovation Competition is a challenge prize run by the European Commission across all EU member states and Horizon 2020 associated countries. Now in its 7th year, the Competition acts as a beacon for social innovators in Europe, employing a proven methodology for supporting early-stage ideas and facilitating a network of radical innovators shaping society for the better.

Each year the Competition is based around a different issue. In 2019, the theme is: “Challenging Plastic Waste”. This year ten finalists are competing for three 50,000€ prizes, with the winners to be announced at a public award ceremony at the Albert Hall Complex in Brussels on October 24th.
