The European Commission has launched a brand new edition of the Horizon Impact Award – a prize dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results have created a societal impact across Europe and beyond. The prize acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful project results under Horizon 2020 (2014-2020), the EU research and innovation program, and its predecessor, the 7th Framework Programme (FP7, 2007-2013).
Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth said:
“We want to highlight the importance of ensuring that research, innovation and science translate into concrete benefits for the citizens and society. Horizon Impact Award puts the spotlight on projects and the people behind them that have contributed towards transformative impacts on the economy, society and policymaking – leading to advancements across different fields. I look forward to seeing many excellent examples of how EU-funded research contributes to shaping a better world.”
Deadline for applications: 8 March 2022.
