(26 February 2015) – The EIB Institute is organising the fourth edition of its Social Innovation Tournament.
The Social Innovation Tournament promotes the generation of innovative ideas and rewards initiatives that fight against social exclusion. It covers projects in a wide range of fields – from education, health care and the natural or urban environments, to new technologies, new systems and new processes.
All projects compete for a General Category 1st and 2nd Prize of EUR 25 000 and EUR 10 000 respectively.
Projects addressing the topic of equal opportunities with a special emphasis on people with disabilities will also compete for the Special Category Prize of EUR 25 000. Further awards include vouchers entitling a number of projects and their teams to benefit from subsequent coaching/mentoring services.
The tournament is open to not-for-profit and for-profit organisations, young entrepreneurs and social enterprises, corporate responsibility departments of private sector companies of any size, NGOs, government or local government entities and university communities.
