3 × 50,000 EUR for innovations against plastic waste



Being a plastic enemy is a worldwide trend by now, and anti-plastic made it also to be the theme of this year’s European Social Innovation Competition:

Their call for applications are currently open, until 4 April 2019. Basically anyone from a member state of the European Union is eligible to apply, and I think also people from some neighboring countries (but I don’t remember exactly).

Just spreading the news here, because it’s a good competition with a hassle-free first round of applications. It’s one of these things that can really push an idea to become reality … happened to us when winning a prize in the first edition of this competition in 2013, triggering the development of what is now PayCoupons.


Ping @Puja @ponyo @winnieponcelet… and others you know.
I think this is the good-for-marketing kind of competition where there’s a network paying some attention to the shortlisted ideas, and some peer learning (?).


Yes they just launched an alumni network where all the shortlisted ideas from all the competition’s rounds will be listed, and are supplied with a badge to show on their website etc…


Perfect match for Volkan - I need to finally make him write about his business here!
