The European Social Innovation Competition is delighted to invite you to join us on the 8th of November for our annual celebration of social innovation. The Brussels event will showcase the ten finalists of the 2018 competition, as well as feature the announcement of the three 2018 winners and the Impact Prize winner.

The theme of the 2018 European Social Innovation Competition is RE:Think Local. After launching in March 2018, the competition aimed to find and support the most innovative projects which empower young people in a changing economy. Thirty semi-finalists were selected for a three-day training Academy held in Cluj, Romania and were supported with individual coaching, before submitting Development Plans for the consideration of the competition’s judging panel. In September, we were delighted to announce the ten finalists for this years competition.

At the event, you will hear from each of the finalists about their projects and from expert speakers on the importance of social innovation in Europe. Please register your attendance today!
