Join us on 26 November from 10:30 am CET for the Award Ceremony for the 2020 European Social Innovation Competition.
The European Social Innovation Competition is a challenge prize run by the European Commission across all EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. Each year the Competition is based around a different issue facing Europe. This year, the focus is: Reimagine Fashion.
A Jury of experts has already selected 10 Finalist social innovation projects, each focusing on changing the ways we produce, buy, use and recycle fashion. On 26 November, the three Winners will be announced, each of whom will receive 50,000€ in prize money. In addition to this, the winner of the 50,000€ Impact Prize will also be announced. This award was open to all Semi-Finalists from the previous year’s edition of the Competition, which ran under the theme ‘Challenging Plastic Waste’. The Impact Prize recognises the innovation that has demonstrated the most significant results leading to social impact across the past 12 months. Before the announcement of the Winners, the Award Ceremony event will include speeches from Commission representatives and an address on the sustainability and circularity of the fashion industry. Viewers will also have the opportunity to watch as all ten Finalists pitch their projects to the audience.
