EC launches first Horizon Impact Award contest
On 20 March 2019, the European Commission (EC) launched the first Horizon Impact Award – a prize dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results have created societal impact across Europe and beyond. The prize acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful project results under Horizon 2020 and its predecessor, the 7th Framework programme (2007-2013).
The prize will highlight concrete achievements that have demonstrable value for society, and will celebrate the people who made it happen. The contest is open only to FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects that are closed and that can provide proof of their impact. Each of the five winners will receive €10,000.-.
The contest is open for applications until 28 May 2019. For further information and to participate in the contest, click here.
