News archive - We congratulate: Sit-in beekeeping foundation Apiform from Bosnia and Herzegovina - one of the winners of the 2015 European Commission Social Innovation Competition!

The European Social Innovation Competition team announced today via video the three winners with ideas for ‘New Ways to Grow’ that will share the €150,000 prize! And the winners are…

  • sit-in beekeeping foundation Apiform from Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • peer-to-peer homestay model for older people The Freebird Club from Ireland
  • accessible car sharing platform Wheeliz from France

The winners were selected out of over 1,400 applications from more than 40 countries and all have the potential to increase growth and sustain not only financial value, but also social progress for citizens, government and enterprises alike. They highlight social and environmental issues that are concerns for many Europeans and are addressing our ageing population, inclusion and accessibility in creative ways.

Each winner will receive a €50,000 prize to test and implement their concept – we wish them the best of luck and are very excited about following their developments!
If you want to find out more about the winners you can do so here. And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter to find out about the launch of next year’s competition!
Thanks for your support this year and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s launch.
