Event description


Awards Ceremony - European Social Innovation Competition 2016 - Integrated Futures

Join us for the Awards Ceremony of the 2016 European Social Innovation Competition at 14.00 on 27 October 2016 at the Albert Hall in Brussels

The ceremony marks the culmination of this year's competition to find innovative ideas to realise the potential of refugees and migrants in Europe.

As well as hearing from European Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska, guests will have the opportunity to listen to the ten finalists' solutions of how to support the successful integration of refugees and migrants, before this year's three winners are announced. We will also announce the winner of the impact prize, awarded to the project from the 2015 competition which has gone on to achieve the greatest results. The Master of Ceremonies will be Bruno Wattenbergh from Impulse-Brussels Enterprise Agency.
