Social Innovation Tournament: change tomorrow, today

Do you have a project in any of the following areas: education, healthcare, environment, circular economy, inclusion, job creation, ageing…? EIB Institute is organising the Social Innovation Tournament to recognise, support and promote social entrepreneurs based in Europe working on innovative projects that “contribute to creating social, ethical or environmental impact.”

The project that wins the first prize will receive €50,000 and the one that comes second will receive €20,000. A jury of academic and industry specialists will evaluate the projects.

This year, the tournament is being held on October 8 in Lisbon, Portugal. The deadline for the submission of proposals is March 4 and the finalists will be announced on May 15. Apply at: http://bit.ly/2SZjFCZ
