(28 June 2017) – The European Commission has today started an EU-wide contest for the “Altiero Spinelli Prize for Outreach: Spreading Knowledge about Europe”. This Prize will reward outstanding contributions that communicate the founding values, history, action and key benefits of the EU to citizens.
Eligible participants include, for example, scholars, researchers, scientists, writers, journalists and artists who can contribute to articulating what Europe stands for today and tomorrow.
This first-time Prize complements the Jean Monnet Actions – an Erasmus+ funded initiative supporting teaching and academic research programmes on EU studies.
The Altiero Spinelli Prize will award six first prizes of €50,000; six second prizes of €30,000 and ten third prizes of €17,000.
