The 10 European Social Innovation Competition 2018 Finalists are announced and REvive Greece is among them!
10 different countries are represented in the final stage of the competition, which this year is looking for the most innovative projects to empower young people in a changing economy.
This year the competition called on Europeans to ask themselves what’s available in their local community and what’s presenting a challenge. How could this be used to design solutions that ensure young people can fully participate in the economy and society?
The finalists were selected by a jury of international experts from 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 program including the Academy in Cluj-Napoca.
The European Social Innovation Competition, launched in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos, is a challenge run by the European Commission, now in its sixth year. The competition is open to applicants from EU member states and countries associated to Horizon 2020. This year’s competition was launched with an event in Paris on 20 March 2018.
The 3 winners of the European Social Innovation Competition 2018 will be announced at a ceremony in Brussels on 8 November.
