EUSIC Finalists Announced
European Social Innovation Competition 2018 Enters FINAL PHASE
The European Commission recently announced the finalists of the 2018 European Social Innovation Competition. Congratulations to all of them!
The 10 finalists – representing 10 different countries, namely Austria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine – can be found here.
With the selection of the 10 strongest projects dedicated to the theme RE:THINK LOCAL, the Competition enters its final stage.
The finalists were selected by a jury of international experts, among 30 semi-finalists covering a wide range of sectors and activities. These, in turn, were selected from a pool of 729 eligible entries from 39 countries. All semi-finalists participated in an intensive training and coaching programme to develop their initiatives.
The three winners of this year’s competition will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on 8 November 2018 in Brussels and will each receive a €50.000 prize to further develop their projects.
We would also like to thank all semi-finalists and encourage them to keep up the good work. All semi-finalists are invited to a fundraising training and to meet international investors at the Funders Fair that will take place in Brussels on the day of the Awards Ceremony. They are also all entitled and encouraged to re-enter the Competition next year for a chance to win the Impact Prize.
