This initiative arises from the intention to support innovative solutions that have the potential to make a major social impact.
Fundación Mapfre is launching the 1st edition of its Awards for Social Innovation backed by business school IE. These prizes want to facilitate the growth of initiatives that resolve and improve specific aspects of the world in which we live. They are seeking to work with communities of social innovators in the specific geographical regions of Brazil and Europe to identify those projects that have the best chance of effecting social transformation and to give them a game-changing boost.
The projects can be submitted in three categories: Improving health and digital technology (e-Health), insurance innovation and mobility and road safety.
The best initiatives can win visibility to potential sources of finance and the winners of each category will receive 30.000 euros from Fundación Mapfre as a donation. In addition, semi-finalists and finalists will receive travel and accomodation expenses to attend events held in connection with the competition.
The closing date for submission of candidatures is 30 April.
