Horizon Impact Award 2022 contest open!

Categories: News


The European Commission is launching a brand new edition of the Horizon Impact Award, a prize dedicated to EU-funded projects whose results have created societal impact across Europe and beyond. The prize acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful project results under Horizon 2020 (2014-2020), the EU research and innovation programme, and its predecessor, the 7th Framework Programme (FP7, 2007-2013).

After the success of the pilot editions in 2019 and 2020, Horizon Impact Award 2022 returns with an increased monetary prize and more winners. The 2022 edition will now have six champions that will each receive €25 000.

The prize will highlight concrete achievements that have a demonstrable value for society, and will celebrate the people who made it happen. The contest is open only to FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects that have ended by the close of the contest and that can provide proof of their impact. Each of the six winners will receive €25 000.

The contest is open for applications until 8 March 2022. The winners will be announced at a dedicated award ceremony in Brussels in 2022.
