The European Commission’s Horizon Prize for Social Innovation will reward the best solutions for improving the travel mobility of older people. This requires reconsidering existing mobility systems in order to meet the needs of older people and help to combat social exclusion and support independent living especially for those with reduced mobility. Providing adequate mobility solutions for older citizens enables them to continue to fully participate in cultural, educational and health activities and services, and to remain active participants of the economy. Developing new mobility solutions or improving existing ones will also provide new opportunities for innovative small companies, transport operators, social economy start-ups and NGOs at local, regional or national level.
- €1,000,000 will be awarded to the best solution
- 4 runner-up prizes will be awarded €250, 000 each
The contest is open to any legal entity or groups of legal entities established in EU Member States or in countries associated to Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation programme.Eligible Regions: Europe
