Horizon Impact Award 2020 contest open: apply by 2 April 2020
European Commission, Innovation & research

The European Commission is launching the 2020 edition of Horizon Impact Award – a prize dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results have created societal impact across Europe and beyond. The prize acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful project results under Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme, and its predecessor, the 7th Framework programme (FP7, 2007-2013).

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said:

With this award, we want to highlight how EU-funded research can benefit citizens and society. We will put the spotlight on projects that have impact on the economy, environment or policymaking. I look forward to seeing many excellent examples of how EU-funded research makes a difference to our daily lives.

The prize will highlight concrete achievements that have demonstrable value for society, and will celebrate the people who made it happen. The contest is open only to FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects that are closed and that can provide proof of their impact. Each of the five winners will receive €10 000.

The contest is open for applications until 2 April 2020, and the winners will be announced at the European Research and Innovation Days in Brussels in September.
