European Social Innovation Competition 2018 Launch

Join us for the launch of the 2018 European Social Innovation Competition at Station F, Paris, on Tuesday 20 March.

We're bringing together Europe's brightest innovators, entrepreneurs and policy makers for an afternoon of networking and talks on social innovation in Paris and further afield. We'll announce the theme for this year and officially open the Competition to entries.

The European Social Innovation Competition offers €50.000 prizes to the three best ideas to tackle a social problem faced by communities across Europe. This event will provide more information about the Competition, showcase social innovation projects in Paris and act as a forum to discuss the major issues around this year's chosen topic. We're delighted to be hosting this year's launch event at Station F's incredible startup campus.
