The launch of the 2015 edition of the European Social Innovation Competition:
Monday 23 March 11:00 – 16:00, at European Solidarity Centre in Gdansk, Poland
With Ms Elżbieta Bieńkoswka, European Commissioner
(Exact timings to be confirmed)
Organised since 2012 in memory of Diogo Vasconcelos, the Competition calls all Europeans to come up with solutions to the problems affecting our society.
This year’s competition is themed around ‘New Ways to Grow’. We’ll be seeking entrepreneurial, game changing ideas that can advance Europe’s growth model. Later this year 3 prizes of EUR 50,000 will be awarded to the 3 best ideas!
The launch will be an opportunity to hear from leading innovators from around the world and reflect upon the 2015 challenge. It will also give a chance to discuss social innovation in the Polish context. A detailed agenda will be made available shortly.
