What is the Horizon Impact Award?

This award is the European Commission's initiative to recognise and celebrate outstanding projects that have used their results to provide value for society.

These projects must have been funded by FP7 and/or Horizon 2020 funding programmes and they must be closed by the time of application.

The award aims to show the wider socio-economic benefits of EU investment in research and innovation.

The award enables individuals or teams to showcase their best practices and achievements. This will encourage other beneficiaries to use and manage their results in the best way possible.

It aims to create role models and inspire beneficiaries of research and innovation funding to maximise the impact of their research.

They can do this by directly exploiting results or by playing an active role ensuring stakeholders effectively use the results.
