Before you submit an entry, please ensure that you have carefully read the Rules of Contest and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). The Competition is open to applicants from the European Union Member States and in countries participating in the European Horizon 2020 programme.

At the first stage we want you to capture our imagination with your innovation. The entry form is designed to provide us with an overview of your idea and the limited word count reflects this. Please respond directly to the questions and stick to the word limits stated. You can save a draft at any time and come back to your application later.

Every entry will be assessed against the following criteria set out in the Rules of Contest:

  • Degree of Innovation
  • Impact
  • Sustainability and Scale
The name and e-mail address you enter to login below will be used as the lead contact details for your application. Once your application has been submitted you will receive a confirmation e-mail. If you do not receive it straight away, please check your junk folder. 

If you have any further questions relating to the European Social Innovation Competition that have not been answered in the Rules of Contest or the FAQs, please email

The deadline for applications is the 7 April 2017 12:00:00 noon Brussels time.
