The new edition of EURADA Awards is live! You are very much encouraged to submit your application and take part in this sharing of experiences and best practices. The deadline for this year will be on the 23rd of November. 

EURADA awards aim to recognise good initiatives undertaken by development agencies, which benefit both its region and any other European region. These awards are an outstanding recognition of best practices since it is regional practitioner peers who evaluate the applications and thus deciding who will be awarded. Being awarded by EURADA means recognition and publicity so, from EURADA’s side, we encourage everyone to participate. Both EURADA members and non-members can apply but there will be only one agency taking the prize. 

The selection criteria for the best practices are the novelty compared to current practices, its demonstrated impact and its transferability. Thus, the actions rewarded are new organisational models for Development Agencies, support given to scaleup of companies and entrepreneurship, new topics or tools in the area of regional economic development and reinventing the development agencies. 

Since 2015 many agencies have been recognized for their good implementations. We want to give a special shoutout to last editions’ winners: FUNDECYT-PCTEx (ES) and Svim (IT), without forgetting the special mention granted to Oost NL (NL) and InnovationQuarter (NL). 

For more information on this year’s call and application method, please check http://www.eurada.org/eurada-awards-2020/. You will find there a slot with all the winners up to date, from 2015 to 2019. 

Participate and let’s make a difference!
