Launched in memory of social innovation pioneer Diogo Vasconcelos, the European Social Innovation Competition is a challenge prize run by the European Commission across all EU member states and Horizon 2020 associated countries. Now in its 7th year, the Competition acts as a beacon for social innovators in Europe, employing a proven methodology for supporting early-stage ideas and facilitating a network of radical innovators shaping society for the better.
Each year the Competition is based around a different issue. This year’s theme is: “Challenging Plastic Waste”.
The panel of judges, among which is also CC’s Executive Director Ladeja Godina Košir, has already met once in May at the 1st Judging Panel meeting, choosing 30 Semi-Finalists.
On 11th September 2019, however, the 2nd Judging Panel will commence, where the judges will decide on the three winners of the competition.
