European Social Innovation Competition


Since 2013, the competition has been a beacon for social innovators across Europe, employing a proven methodology for supporting early-stage ideas and facilitating a network of radical innovators shaping our society for the better.

About the European Social Innovation Competition

The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Entrepreneurship & SMEs ran the European Social Innovation Competition (EUSIC) from 2013 to 2021 across all EU countries and Horizon Europe associated countries. Since the 2021 edition, the EUSIC has had the European Innovation Council's (EIC) support. 

Each year, the competition, launched in memory of social innovation pioneer Diogo Vasconcelos, addresses a specific challenge facing Europe. Three €50.000 prizes are awarded to the best socially innovative projects designed to change our society for the better.

See the EUSIC 2021 website for more information on the 2021 edition of the competition.
