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.
The Innovation in Politics Awards will take place for the fourth time this year. They offer a stage for policy innovations and model projects from across Europe, to serve as inspiration for politicians as well as citizens.
This year, the Innovation in Politics Awards for the best political projects from all over Europe were presented in Berlin. Out of over 400 nominees, 80 finalists and eight winners in eight categories were selected by a jury of more than 1,000 European citizens.
Am Samstag wurden in Wien die Innovation in Politics Awards für die besten politischen Projekte aus ganz Europa zum zweiten Mal verliehen. Aus über 600 Nominierten wurden in acht Kategorien 80 Finalisten und acht Gewinner von einer Jury aus 1.053 europäischen Bürgerinnen und Bürgern ausgewählt.
