The Social Innovation Tournament recognises and supports the best European social entrepreneurs. It is organised every year in a different country to reward and sponsor European entrepreneurs whose primary purpose is to generate a social, ethical or environmental impact.
SIT promotes the generation of innovative ideas and rewards initiatives that fight against social exclusion. Covers projects in a wide range of fields – from education, health care and job creation to new technologies, new systems and new processes.
Four prizes will be awarded by a Jury of specialists (academic and business): General Category and Special Category 1st and 2nd Prizes of EUR 50,000 and EUR 20,000 respectively. In 2017, the Special Category Prizes will go to projects focusing on ageing.
