Every year the European Commission (Directorate-General for Energy and EASME) organises the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) – one of the biggest events dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. The 2018 edition attracted more than 2500 participants. The theme for 2019 is “Shaping Europe’s energy future” and it will cover a series of activities with an EU-wide scope. EUSEW will take place during the third week of June and include the EUSEW Policy Conference in Brussels from 18 to 20 June.
The opening of submissions for the #EUSEW19 Awards has been officially launched!
This year, the four Award categories are:
-Engagement: For activities that inspire and motivate citizens to make their energy habits more sustainable
-Leadership: For activities that are contributing to the long-term objectives of the EU, whilst providing significant socio-economic benefits
-Innovation: For EU-funded activities that demonstrate the sustainable energy transition in original and innovative ways
-Youth: For activities carried out by, or targeting, people under 30
As you can see, the Innovation category is reserved for EU-funded projects. As a H2020 project coordinator, you could apply for an Award in this category. Nevertheless, feel free to apply to any category.
You can apply online until 11 February 2019.
If you are one of the shortlisted projects, 3 for each category, you will be invited to the Awards ceremony in Brussels during the EUSEW Policy Conference.
