The European Commission has launched the first Horizon Impact Award. This award recognise and celebrate outstanding projects that have used their results to provide value for society.
The award aims to show the wider socio-economic benefits of EU investment in research and innovation.
The award enables individuals or teams to showcase their best practices and achievements. This will encourage other beneficiaries to use and manage their results in the best way possible.
It aims to create role models and inspire beneficiaries of research and innovation funding to maximise the impact of their research.
They can do this by directly exploiting results or by playing an active role ensuring stakeholders effectively use the results.
Instructions on how to apply, news about the contest and full details of the award are available here.
