2016 Social Innovation Competition

The 2016 Social Innovation Competition focuses on social innovation for refugees and migrants.

The European Commission is looking for innovations in products, technologies, services and models that can support the integration of refugees and migrants. Innovations can relate to any aspect of the reception and integration process including, but not limited to, ideas around:

  • education and skills development
  • employment and entrepreneurship
  • access to appropriate housing and health services
  • safety and human rights
  • community cohesion and cultural diversity.

Applications that are led by or have been co-created with refugees and migrants are encouraged.

The 3 winners of the competition will each receive a prize of €50,000.

Apply by 8 April 2016.
