A competition of inspiring stories of social innovation: will we win?

Would you like to know ten of the best social innovations in Europe?

Euclid Network in partnership with the European Commission and Social Innovation eXchange will identify 10 large-scale successful examples of socially innovative initiatives, with the aim of raising the profile of social innovation across Europe.

The main goal of the competition is to showcase 10 socially innovative initiatives which can help people in Europe and beyond to understand and promote social innovation.

Creative Cities has entered the competition with the story of the project – from its origin, launch and the difference it has been making in cities across Europe.

The 10 selected entries will be used by the European Commission as case studies in future communication about social innovation in the EU.

The competition will select those projects which have contributed with the most innovative approaches to current European social challenges: ageing, employment, climate change, social inclusion, economic recovery.

The 10 selected initiatives will be featured in an official European Commission publication, launched at an event in Brussels. The winners will also be invited to participate in a “disruptive innovation workshop” organized by the Social Innovation Park in Bilbao.

On 20 September, the 10 initiatives selected by a jury of experts will be announced. Fingers crossed for Creative Cities!
