The European Prize for Humanitarian Innovation

It-Tnejn, September 18, 2023

The European Union has launched the European Prize for Humanitarian Innovation (InnovAid) to reward the humanitarian organisations, social enterprises, and companies that are developing technology to better assist vulnerable people affected by natural hazards and man-made crises such as conflicts.

Humanitarian emergencies are increasing year on year in number, complexity, and severity. Given the scale of today’s crises and hazards, funding to cover humanitarian needs cannot keep up. The humanitarian system is being challenged to do more, for more people, and at greater cost. To meet these rising needs, innovative technological solutions – cost-effective, simple to (re)use, scalable in different contexts - which improve the efficiency and effectiveness of aid, are crucial.

The European Prize for Humanitarian Innovation recognises innovations and the organisations that develop them. The objective is to inspire other humanitarian actors to scale up actions for a more effective and efficient delivery of humanitarian assistance and ensure their benefits flow to people affected by crises, and particularly those in a most vulnerable situation.

The winner of the European Prize for Humanitarian Innovation (InnovAid) will be awarded with EUR 250 000 and the two runners up, ranked 2nd and 3rd, with EUR 150 000 and EUR 100 000 respectively.

Application Deadline 3 October 2023, 17:00 CET.
