The Horizon Impact Award acknowledges and rewards the most influential and impactful project results under Horizon 2020, the EU research and innovation programme, and its predecessor, the 7th framework programme (FP7, 2007-2013).
The prize will highlight concrete achievements that have 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 are closed and that can provide proof of their impact.
Each of the five winners will receive €10 000.
The contest is open for applications until 2 April 2020, and the winners will be announced at the European Research and Innovation Days in Brussels in September.
