The Innovation in politics Awards

Press Kit

The Innovation in Politics Awards recognise courageous and creative political projects in Europe. The aim of the competition is to create a growing network of the best minds in politics with a view to sharing knowledge and promoting the exchange of best practice at all political levels and across borders and party lines.

Over the past four years, a combined 4,000 European citizens have selected a total of 330 finalists and 33 winning projects from more than 1,500 submissions. From 2017-2019, all finalists were given the opportunity to share ideas and experiences at networking events in Vienna and Berlin, and were honoured at a gala ceremony. To date, 1,600 guests from the political sphere and from all over Europe have attended.
