European Social Innovation Competition
The 2015 European Social Innovation Competition has launched, with €50 000 in prize money for the top three projects.
Based around the theme ‘New Ways to Grow‘ the competition aims to support inviduals and organisations with entrepreneurial, game changing ideas for social innovation projects.
he Competition invites Europeans to come up with game changing ideas that can advance Europe’s growth model, for example:
- Challenge the assumptions upon which economic growth is usually conceived (e.g. the trend for sharing and collaborative economy);
- Question supply chain, production and delivery modes, or use of mainstream products or services (e.g. circular economy);
- Conceive new technologies or propose smarter use of existing technologies for the benefit of society (e.g. internet of things or 3D-printing);
- Generate new solutions and approaches for societal challenges of today and the future.
Deadline: 12:00 noon, Brussels time, on 8th May 2015.
