Help improve politics in Europe – by participating in The Innovation in Politics Awards!
We recognise and support those politicians who have the courage to break new ground, who are creative and achieve real results – regardless of party affiliation and regional level, and based on our European values: social balance, democracy and human rights. We bring their innovative work to the fore, so that it may serve as a source of inspiration.
Categories and Criteria
The Innovation in Politics Awards are presented in eight categories: Quality of Life, Prosperity, Jobs, Ecology, Civilisation, Democracy, Human Rights, and Community.
Besides the core criterion Innovation, three other criteria apply to all nominated projects: Participation, Building Trust and Sustainability.
