The European Commission (EC) has launched the 2022 edition of its Horizon Impact Award, a prize dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results have created societal impact across Europe and beyond. Six winners will be chosen, and each will receive €25,000.
The contest is open for applications until March 8th. The winners will be announced at a dedicated award ceremony in Brussels in 2022.
The prize acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful project results under Horizon 2020 (2014-2020) and its predecessor, the 7th Framework Programme (FP7, 2007-2013). The prize will highlight concrete achievements that have a demonstrable value for society, and will celebrate the people who made it happen.
IMPORTANT: The contest is open only to FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects that have ended by the close of the contest and that can provide proof of their impact.
