he prizes will be presented by Elżbieta Bieńkowska, European Commissioner responsible for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs.

During the ceremony we will recognise successful projects among the finalists of the 2013 and 2014 editions, all of which have had a positive impact both in economic terms and for the benefit of society.

With the competition judges, we will also explore new territories for social innovation ranging from the collaborative economy to the open innovation trend through the makers' movement.

The grand finale will be the announcement of our three 2015 winners, who will each receive €50,000 towards developing their ideas for ‘New Ways to Grow’, followed by networking and celebratory cocktails until 20.00.
