European social innovation competition

Second European Social Innovation Competition

The Second European Social Innovation Competition is closed since 11 December 2013. Take a look at the best ideas selected.

The Competition, launched in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos, invites Europeans to come up with new solutions to reduce unemployment and minimize its corrosive effects on the economy and our society both now and in the future. Social innovation is not only desirable, it is necessary.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t found the right investor for your ideas yet. We can help you bring your project to life as part of our Social Innovation Academy. The three winning projects will be awarded financial support of EUR 30,000.

But there’s more. Winners of the first edition emphasize that the Competition has given them the chance to develop a great idea, to bring legitimacy to their work, and last but not least, to make their solution accessible to more people.

Don’t keep your great ideas to yourself.

As one of the winners says: «Should you have an idea, work on it and take your chance. The same could happen to you. You could end up winning

I will be mentoring one of them, driving innovation through design. After next week session I will give some feedback.
