The European Commission has launched the first Horizon Impact Award. This prize acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful projects under Horizon 2020 or FP7. Can you demonstrate that you have valorized your results and created a societal impact?


The prize will celebrate the best outcomes and the people who made them happen. The contest is now open to all participants who completed an FP7 or H2020 project. Each of the five winners will receive €10 000 at the award ceremony during the European Research and Innovation days in Brussels in September.


Please apply through the Funding and Tenders portal. The deadline for submission is 28 May 2019. For more information about the eligibility and award criteria, please visit the dedicated EC website.
