EIC Horizon Prize for “Affordable High-Tech for Humanitarian Aid”

The EIC Horizon Prizes offer money to those who can solve some of society’s most difficult challenges, without detailing how this should be achieved or who should achieve it. These prizes are open to anyone willing to think outside the box across sectors and disciplines. 

A total value of EUR 5 million will be allocated in five awards of EUR 1 million each for the best, proven, cost-effective tech-based solution for humanitarian aid in five distinct thematic areas:

– Shelter and related assistance
– Water, sanitation and hygiene
– Energy
– Health and medical care
– Other forms of humanitarian aid (“open category”)  

Cooperation between international organisations and NGOs responding to crises, beneficiaries and local actors, research and scientific communities and the private sector is strongly encouraged in the context of this Prize. The deadline to apply is 15 January 2020 and the contest is open to all legal entities from all countries.
