The 2017 Social Innovation Competition aims to make technological change and digital transformation more inclusive. The 3 winners of the competition will each receive a prize of €50,000. The competition is open for entries until 7 April 2017. Take a chance, enter the competition and submit your idea!
2017 theme is Equality rebooted – we focus on digital technologies and equality.
This year DGGrowth is looking for fresh and energetic ideas, which could include, but are not limited to:
• New technologies and business models that make the digital economy more inclusive or use collaborative solutions to reduce inequality;
• Innovations that empower disadvantaged people to fully participate in the digital economy and gain revenue from employment or entrepreneurship;
• Initiatives that equip those at risk of being shut out of the labour market with the appropriate skills to shape the knowledge economy, such as creativity, communication or problem-solving;
• Solutions to protect and support low wage/skilled workers in the evolving labour market.
The deadline is Friday 7 April 2017 at 12.00.00 (noon, Brussels Time), so we still have one week to go.
